Eco 200: cosmetology

(individual) An advocate of state regulation of cosmetologists and barbers argued that the state cosmetology agency had taken in $756,805 in revenue in the preceding year while spending only $589,014, thus providing a net benefit to the state. Where would you look to locate some additional costs created by the agency?

Licensing cosmetologists likely reduces the supply of hairstylists. This will increase the cost to consumers. The law of demand says that they will purchase fewer hairstyling services. This will reduce tax revenue for the state government.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
