While on a long road trip, what economic system provided the goods and services I needed, when and where I wanted them?
I took a road trip from the Los Angeles area to Williston last week. My wife and I drove there with our son and his family.
A few questions came to mind on the trip
1. What economic system provides a gas station within a few miles of the point that we decided we wanted to fill up the tank?
With four drivers in the car, we were planning to drive on through the night. We were too tired to do that so we decided to stop for the night.
2. What economic system provides multiple hotels and motels half an hour down the road from where we changed our mind?
3. Furthermore, when we wanted to stop, what economic system provided motels at multiple price points so we could pick the one that fit our price range and taste?
4. Why is it that the motel we choose included a full breakfast for all of us in the price?
5. Why did the motel even have two upgraded lamps on the night stands each with 2 USB charging points and two electrical outlets on the base of each lamp?
