Tight Contest for the Sherlock Holmes of Mahjong

Sherlocks

ONLINE March 2015 - This year's Sherlock Holmes of Mahjong contest brought the largest field of competitors yet, and the crowd at the top is still tight; the title could belong to anyone. With four competitors tied for 1st, and five more just one point behind, the last couple of questions will be the make-or-break opportunity for many. The contest is likely to come down to the timing; how fast each player is able to get their answers in. So set your alarm clocks, and get sluthing!

Joseph Edward's Theory of Market Ecocomy

I believe your theory might at first glance has some merit, but is actually extremely flawed and ignorant, bordering absurdity. In the FREE MARKET ECONOMY, Laissez-faire, the market is determined by the consumers and supply and demand theories. If the market condition is viable, there will certainly be new competition that will emerge.

PetiteEtoile, I do understand how the free market economy works. As a student of economics, I'm not ignorant of that. What you don't seem to understand is that no market is perfectly competitive and the Anglophone online mahjong market is particularly susceptible to this.

For example: its monopoly status thanks to its share of the market (particularly its ability to advertise and affliate), uneven information thus (how can you make an informed decision on what client to use when MahjongTime is portrayed as the only choice?), the nature of the market (particularly in that because of the multiplayer aspect any client must quickly build a strong base to be viable, and thus a limited number of firms can be viable) the small target demographic in the shorter term, etc

The market condition isn't viable when MahjongTime has such a corrupting influence. It effectively has reached monopoly status and is in a position to prevent or hinder other companies entering the market through its economic power, media and commercial influence, and large market share. If a company was operating under these conditions in a large market with these conditions, it would have probably have been butchered by regulators already!
