A Basic Rule of Economics

A basic concept that the business students are taught a small portion of economics is that if there is demand then the supply will find its way to it. So if the supply of some commodity is to be stopped the demand side should be attacked as one's best option. Applying this to some practical situations where the blame game also occupies the hot seat I guess we'll come to realize who's to be blamed.

Most of the time the good people of our society complain about the filth that Lollywood(Pakistan's film industry) portrays, also the deteriorated form of the theater. Analyzing the case what's the demand? People who are their target customers term the stuff entertainment & why so. Well you can't expect from a fruit vendor to enjoy your standard of cinema as his life circle is not bothered about its effects. Wouldn't it be better if we improve the general grooming level of our people?

Coming to something much bigger in size; the present condition of our political elite, who unfortunately are in ample supply. But how come they are at the top & our good ol "para likha tabka" out of the scene? Why are some of these people discussing this in their drawing rooms that their children will be a minority in the near future that they are seeing & will be ruled by the mixture of the elite & the lower "unpar jahil" class? Who's responsible for not bringing up their children with the awareness & courage that they should not just be concerned about their own personal benefits? Weren't these sanity filled people supposed to inject some nationalism in their brood? They didn't think that all this was necessary therefore now they don't have any right to whine when the lower class has an ample demand for the ruling elite & are ready to even vote for a "khamba" if that's the candidate of their beloved party.
