The countercyclical meal plan, Arrow-Hahn-Debreu edition

Will Wilson blogs:

Seattle’s 5 Spot has a new “Blue Plate Special” promotion, with the daily meal priced like this:

…we’re pricing these items daily according to the most
recent close of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. If the Dow closes at
8650, then your “square meal” will only cost you $8.65; if it closes at
7875, then you win your meal for a mere $7.87.

There’s a built-in stop-loss, too. They make a limited number of blue plates each night, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
