Violet, that works in the classroom but probably wont work in this situation. In short the theorem basically provides: " things will work themselves out".There's an interesting law and economics principle called the Coase theorem, where if transactional costs are low, it doesn't matter who is assigned the initial property right, parties will still come to the most efficient solution.
(I know this doesn't reward donors who cannot afford to go out and buy tickets at a premium, just wanted to share the Coase theorem )
Also, we as donors shouldn't have to "work it out".
That is why we pay the AD.
