Demand and supply - it's in everything!

Jane posted our pictures from junior high online, we started the discussion.... that's 1997, when we were still easily happy with 1 good hangout, 1 beautiful skirt.... life as a teen was probably the best, when the world was smaller, we thought we knew it all....

Today, Jane is the mom of 2, Bargitta moved to Canada, Nancy married a billionaire... Silan decided to go against Chinese culture and stay as double income no kids... and I... with 2 offers in hands last week, I took one and decided to extend my stay in Netherlands for a bit longer...

'Why we don't feel happy as easy anymore?' - Jane often comes up with million dollar questions

'Because we read too many fictions than should, watched too many movies than needed, meet too many intelligent people at younger age which isn't necessary a good thing...Because we're getting old' - some personality result shows that I'm 50/50 for male/female brain, that's scaring, and that probably gives me the space to be 'direct and blunt', I can always blame the other half of my brain

'I'm not getting old' - Nancy stays forever 25, well she does look fantastic, some ladies never get any sign of age, I know a lot of them, and Nancy is one

'No you're not, you're always in demand' - we all have some girlfriends who behave like 18, and talk like 12

....

Talking about demand, here comes supply.... 

Recently I met up with an interesting company who is the king of demand/supply management in the market - Uber...their surge pricing model was out in front of everyone, then we were shocked, the economic professor didn't lie, everything is predictable. I'm a supporter of Uber model, nothing is really exclusive anymore in Internet world, they initiated shared economy, and I believe the world needs it; I'm a supporter of Uber also for their graceful attitude towards competition, especially in China we saw how the local firms can do...Uber is relax to it,let competitors come to play, and let game become even more interesting, it'll be boring if you're the only one in the market... Sounds easy right? Trust me, it isn't, I also met some firms who asked for exclusivity with no base in hands at all... the question itself already took away all the possible elegance...
