  • take it or leave it, that is my final offer

    Prof. Gregory Northcraft hypothetically offered two skybox tickets (with free drinks in the box) to the NFC Championship game between the Packers and the Bears to the class with a bidding process. In the end the prices being offered vary with one student not willing to pay anything for it. I was confident that I would be the guy who is willing to pay the most for them. Prof. Northcraft then offered the student to sell the tickets to me for $1,000. He would've accepted it and I'd be happy to take it. Thing is, he didn't know I was willing to pay for up to $3,500 for those awesome tickets. Would he change his decision had he known my stance?
