Well I also try and buy either the strip of reds or the strip of greens too.

I prefer to go for corner coverage rather than a single side.

Not according to the definition of the word:-

"A regular gathering of people for the purchase and sale of provisions, livestock, and other commodities."

According to THAT definition. There are plenty of others like "A market is one of the many varieties of systems, institutions, procedures, social relations and infrastructures whereby parties engage in exchange". The OED simply has it as "A place at which trade is conducted."

Hey I just go with the definition in the dictionary; apologies if I should use a different one.....


Incidentally, trade:- the action of buying and selling goods and services.

That works in a general sense. But when we're talking about "market" in the context of "market forces", you can't really start redefining words as per your opinions just to make the theory fail... ;) Even if you're a non-profit making charity funded solely by donations providing, say, free hamster wheels, you'll still be governed by supply and demand in the same way as if you were trying to make a profit by selling the wheels. If demand for free wheels exceeds the quantity that you can produce using donations, you're not going to be able to make up the difference just because you're not after making a financial profit.

Love Golf?
Why not take part in KidsCan's Annual Golf Tournament!
Monday 9th June at DeVere Mottram Hall Hotel in Cheshire.

De Vere Mottram Hall Championship golf course is set in 270 acres of Cheshire’s finest parkland, located one mile from the picturesque village of Prestbury, and was the host venue for the 2013 European Senior’s PGA Championship. The 7,006 yard 18-hole, Par 72 Championship golf course comprising of magnificent parkland fairways dotted with oak and beech trees and tricky, well-guarded greens is broken up into two contrasting circuits of nine. The front nine, with its impressive back-drop of the 18 Century Hall, gently rolls over meadowland and offers the golfer many chances to make a score. The back nine winds through some lush woodland and is a much more demanding test of golf. Click here to take a closer look.

We start the day at 11:30am with hand-carved bacon rolls and fresh coffee, overlooking the golf course from the Thomas Suite.

Then, teams will head out for 18 holes of championship golf.
Awards will be given for the longest drive and nearest the pin.

Finally, after a challenging afternoon on the golf course, we’ll get a chance to relax and socialise in the sun as we enjoy a traditional hog roast prepared by Mottram Hall’s talented chefs.

We will round off the evening with presentations and a charity raffle.

Join Kidscan in helping children diagnosed with cancer to survive and thrive.
