Extended essay price discrimination

Recommended Posts

My problem is that I am writing my extended essay on price discrimination practiced by doctors. Somehow I think that doctors practice first degree price discrimination and some sources say so on the internet, but my teacher says they practice third degree price discrimination, which some sources on the internet also say. :)

What do you guys think?

I think it would be both--usually doctors will make it cheaper for customers with lower income, and for friends/relatives they sometimes make it cheaper too or even they can enjoy free service (not medicine though).

have you interviewed any doctor? didn't they say anything on this?

haha try to ask them whether they vary the price between customers in a subjective manner? or did you ask them like that already? but I think it'd be pretty sensible for doctors not to understand economics anyway, so when you interview them try to ask in layman's terms.
