      Book 2, page 103, in the section on econ see the paragraph under Figure 11. The first two sentences make me laugh.

      “… does not mean that a world with only one brand/type of toothpaste would be a better world.”

      Yes, Schweser authors, the thought of a world with just one toothpaste to choose from makes me shudder.

      A dystopian vision indeed. Wait till they monopolize the toothbrush industry.

      Yea the Schweser notes can be a little humorous at times.

      I remember a question in the
      L1 notes from 2013 that used three companies: Klatu, Verata & Nicktu.
      Anyone who saw the cult classic Army of Darkness would get the reference. I took a picture of
      the problem and sent it to my friends, thinking it would get a good laugh. Unfortunately,
      I was so delirious from studying that I really overestimated the fact that my
      friends would get this obscure reference imbedded in a complex finance problem
      and they all wrote back something like , “Looks like Klatu has a leverage
      issue” haha

      In the Soviet Union, there was only one brand of toothpaste.
