Summary

Would you believe that-: Price Gouging is Good for Consumers? Public Schools Don't Need More Money? A Minimum Wage Hurts Poor People? Sounds crazy, right? But consumer advocate and 20/20 reporter John Stossel backs it up. He explains that much of what we hear-and what the media say-are myths.
