Remember, without demand there will be no supply. At the marketplace it is the demand (overt or otherwise) that drives supply!
- Peddling of fake sex drugs
- Peddling of counterfeit cigarettes
- Peddling by prostitutes
- Addiction to gambling
- Addiction to alcohol consumption
- Addiction to smoking
- Rise of HIV/AIDs epidemic
- Rise of inflation
- Price wars
- Availability of food
- Availability of water
Can you think of more?
Is going after supply ever going to solve the problem, or do we really do it to help boost the country’s government revenue (charge the one who charges!)? Or do we do it because it is just easier than going after demand?
When would we solve (once and for all) the problem?
Chasing the supply? Or the demand?
