Nobody, of course, wanted Gould to succeed; and when ordered the Treasury to sell gold, the price broke, the short traders won, and Gould's position was destroyed.
Activities Theory is capable guardianship.
Others then borrowed gold (even from Gould) to sell, on the expectation that Gould would fail in his play and the prices would fall back down, enabling them to buy back and recover a profit.
Do you really want to delete this prezi?
A government that grants a monopoly in a certain enterprise cannot determine a market-clearing price and so is going to victimize a company by allowing a high enough price is going to victimize the public by mandating or engineering prices that are too high: those prices then include "monopoly rents," the amount of money the company makes over the profits of a competitive market.
Creating downloadable prezi, be patient.
It has reached the point where someone who lost their entire company email archive told me "I got an error message" and wanted me to fix the problem, but was then flabbergasted when I asked what the error message actually said. Nobody reads the error messages. They aren't the people who are supposed to care what the error messages say. They're just the people who are responsible for keeping the email server working.... Or, in this case, restoring it from backup, with some structural still out there unidentified waiting to strike again.
At least in America, nearly every driver takes horrendous risks every time they get behind the wheel (and I include myself in that statement). A significant number of us routinely speed at 5 to 10 miles over the speed limit, some even faster. Some of us never use a turn signal. Many drivers ONLY drive in the fast lane. We drive without wearing seatbelts, with loose articles in the car just waiting to become a deadly projectile, on bad tires, with bad brakes, broken side mirrors, no brake lights, lights off during bad weather. Tailgating at highway speeds on slippery roads is common, as is taking curves at dangerous speeds. Running red lights? Pretty much at EVERY light change. Stop signs? A waste of money for the most part. Damn, I wish the car wouldn't bounce so much, it makes typing hard. Ultra-bright headlights? Cool is better than safe (amirite?). Gotta be at the front of the line to save that extra half second. Let someone else in line in front of ME? forgetaboutitnotgonnahappen. Man, I'm really buzzed tonight, I'd better be "extra careful"...
