This video takes you to a Chicago hotel room during the AEA meetings. I make two important points. First, the AEA leverages its negotiation strength to secure very low hotel rates during the off season -- a time when hotels have many extra rooms available. Second, I discuss why the prices of hotel mini-bars and snacks seem outrageously high. But why is this just good economics?
