Seems as if the Supreme Court is dealing with its own ticket scarcity problem. Namely: they’re not charging enough for people to see popular hearings. This is just supply and demand and the solutions are pretty straightforward: more seats or higher prices. And there’s nothing ignoble about this; it’s a law of nature.
Mark Perry writes about this topic a lot (for example: here, here, here) in the context of concert and sports tickets. It’s the same issue. And the complaints and cries against ticket scalping and appropriate pricing are ridiculous.
Or, “drug scalping” in Evolve.
