fruits & labors

LaserWolf: if someone harvests wild fruit and sells it LaserWolf: should their price be less than the price of farmed fruit? goblins: no it should be the same unless its stealing from someone else’s property goblins: what’s your position on it? LaserWolf: the farmer should get more…. but if he charges more, people will just buy from the wild harvester LaserWolf: so they should charge the same LaserWolf: funny when you think about it LaserWolf: you’re not buying the fruit LaserWolf: you’re buying the right to eat the ‘fruit’ of someone’s labors goblins: no you own the fruit then, not their labor LaserWolf: good point LaserWolf: but what you are paying for is their time LaserWolf: so you don’t have to go find or grow your own goblins: their time is paid for from the profits LaserWolf: their profits are the money you give them, right? goblins: yeah LaserWolf: we said the same thing there LaserWolf: hah
