I think I have settled in my mind what is wrong with New York pricing.
The idea we have here is to charge what we feel is fair for
a) The effort required.
b) The skill required.
c) The time we put in to learn the skill required.
d) The tool required.
e) The likelihood that something will go disastrously wrong.
f) The part availability and cost.
The idea amongst many businesses in New York, is to charge what “people are willing to pay.”
I wish my conscience allowed this. I’d be a very rich man by now.
I am glad that the people I have the privilege to work alongside everyday feel the same way.
