„When I talk to people about how to design a carbon price, I think the model is British Columbia. You raise electricity prices by $100 a year, but then the government gives back a dividend that lowers internet prices by $100 year. In real terms, you’re raising the price of carbon goods but lowering the prices of non-carbon-intensive goods.“

„People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.“

—  Adam Smith Scottish moral philosopher and political economist 1723 - 1790

Quelle: The Wealth of Nations (1776), Book I, Chapter X, Part II, p. 152.
Kontext: People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. It is impossible indeed to prevent such meetings, by any law which either could be executed, or would be consistent with liberty or justice. But though the law cannot hinder people of the same trade from sometimes assembling together, it ought to do nothing to facilitate such assemblies; much less to render them necessary.

„I repainted the only unsold picture that was [exhibited] in Rotterdam last year. It seems to me that it looks quite pleasing and good now... I want you to ask him [the client] seven hundred guilders.... for six hundred as lowest price I would be willing to sell it and if you think - knowing him - it would be better to ask that price at once, so do it.“

—  Willem Roelofs Dutch painter and entomologist (1822-1897) 1822 - 1897

translation from original Dutch: Fons Heijnsbroek
(original Dutch: citaat van Willem Roelofs, in het Nederlands:) Ik heb het eenige nog niet verkochte schilderij dat voorl. jaar te Rotterdam was, overgeschilderd.. .Mij dunkt, dat het er nog al aangenaam en goed uitziet.. .Ik wilde dat gij hem zevenhonderd guldens voor vroeg.. ..voor zeshonderd zou ik het uiterlijk kunnen laten en meent gij, hem kennende, het beter zou zijn dadelijk die prijs te vragen zoo doe het dan.
Quote from a letter of W. Roelofs, Brussel 20 June, 1860, to art-collector/dealer P. verloren van Themaat in Utrecht, from: an extract of the Dutch Archive RKD, The Hague https://rkd.nl/explore/excerpts/289
this letter is one of many illustrations that Roelofs repainted his paintings rather frequently, as improvement or on demand of the client

„The American people have been offered two lousy choices. One, which is corporatism, a fascist type of approach, or, socialism. We deliver a lot of services in this country through the free market, and when you do it through the free market prices go down. But in medicine, prices go up. Technology doesn't help the cost, it goes up instead of down. But if you look at almost all of our industries that are much freer, technology lowers the prices. Just think of how the price of cell phones goes down. Poor people have cell phones, and televisions, and computers. Prices all go down. But in medicine, they go up, and there's a reason for that, that's because the government is involved with it… I do [think that prices will go down without government involvement], but probably a lot more than what you're thinking about, because you have to have competition in the delivery of care. For instance, if you have a sore throat and you have to come see me, you have to wait in the waiting room, and then get checked, and then get a prescription, and it ends up costing you $100. If you had true competition, you should be able to go to a nurse, who could for 1/10 the cost very rapidly do it, and let her give you a prescription for penicillin. See, the doctors and the medical profession have monopolized the system through licensing. And that's not an accident, because they like the idea that you have to go see the physician and pay this huge price. And patients can sort this out, they're not going to go to a nurse if they need brain surgery…“
