Well, all the unjustified and unsubstantiated comments aside, there is no Kellys Blue Book of ginseng. There is no $XXX price at which a given lot of ginseng is worth.
I sure wish I could sell my car this way. I mean think about this a second. You put an ad in the paper for a 2005 car. Someone calls because they are interested. They come look at your car and say \"I like it, its got some issues, but I'd like to give you $5000 for it.\" And, you tell them \"No, you are going to give me $8000 for it.\"
...so they say \"Gee, ok\" and give you eight grand automatically because they don't have a CHOICE in the matter. After all, you are setting the selling price right?
But...what happens when they say \"I will not pay $8000 for a car I am only willing to pay $5000 for because it has issues or I can only $5200 out of it when I resell it.\" You decide to keep it. You pay to store it. You pay to insure it. And, each year it gets older and older and is not worth as much as it was when you originally tried to sell it. Yet, you didn't get taken advantage of did you. You're the man alright. You showed that greedy SOB not to mess with you ...how dare he insult you by only offering you $5000 for YOUR car!
In the real world, you cannot made someone buy something they don't want, or make them buy something they want for more than they are willing to pay. You most certainly cannot make someone pay more for it than they can get when they resell it. THAT is the real reality of the situation kids.
