Happy Christmas from the Weitzs and Mahjong News!   

weitz2014

KIRKLAND, Quebec (Canada) - Even though their Christmas Card has to travel all the way from Canada to Holland, Allan and Lila Weitz never fail, like Santa. For years, they have been the first to get their Christmas card in the postbox of Mahjong News. And then, we mean a real postbox, not a digital one.

Allan and his wife Lila Weitz are long time collectors of mahjong sets. They always picture themselves on the card they send their numerous friends, in Canada and world wide. E.g. last year, we saw them shopping and wearing T-shirts with the text ‘Mah-Jongg Sets Wanted’. This year, they pose behind some of their most beautiful mah-jongg cases.

Thank you so much for your faithful Season’s Greetings, Lila and Allan. Mahjong News seizes the opportunity to share your pretty card with all mahjong friends on the globe who are the visitors of the Independent Internet Mahjong Newspaper: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


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!
