Liverpool Barbers

January 26, 2011 4:07 AM

inspired by a line from this thread. Thanks, TheophileEscargot!

"Suppose there's a shortage of barbers in Manchester, but a surplus of barbers in Liverpool. In a capitalist economy, price signaling starts a vast and incredibly complex cascade of changes. The price of a haircut goes up in Manchester, and down in Liverpool. So, smart Liverpudlian barbers start to move to Manchester to make more money. Mancunians who travel around a lot get their hair cut in Liverpool to save money. The extra money tempts retired Mancunian barbers back into doing business, and attracts students into hair-cutting courses. A Mancunian with an important need for a haircut, say for a job interview or a wedding, goes ahead and pays the extra price. A Mancunian who doesn't desperately need a haircut looks at the price and decides to leave it a month. "

all done in Live, using a Zoom H4n as the interface, mic'd with an EV635a.
