Confronted with the choice of buying $99 water and the alternative, I’d boil (flood)water. I think your case against capitalism is as academic as the defenders you complain about. You fail to note that the consequence of price controls (and how much “control” do we have in a disaster?) is that they create (further) shortages.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
