Summary
Have you ever wondered why all movies, whether blockbusters or duds, have the same ticket prices? Why so many prices end with 9? Why merchants offer sales, coupons, and rebates? Richard McKenzie shows how the 9/11 terrorists still kill Americans every day, because their attack distorted the perceived risks and relative prices of air vs. automobile travle, and jacked up both security costs and flight delays
