    Chances are if you make a chicken sandwich yourself it will cost less than $5, but Andy George's chicken sandwich cost $1,500 because he made everything from scratch. What causes this huge difference in cost between chicken sandwiches made from scratch and bought at the grocery store?

Because to make it himself he had to travel to California for the salt, grow his own crops, his own chickens, his own wheat. And if you add up the cost for labor it totals to $1500.

A convoluted explanation of scaling vs. self-sufficiency. There's no conflict here. We need BOTH. I bet I can make a chicken sandwich from scratch without having to build a salt factory! Voodoo economics. 😂

Most factories buy salt they don’t make their own. And if they did they wouldn’t be renting 14 seperate boats to gather sea water.

Brandon Sanchez
Brandon Sanchez

its not about making a sandwich from scratch, that was already shown in the other video he talked about. it is about why chicken sandwiches are not $1500, the amount of money it cost the dude to make the sandwich from scratch. And he explains this with the salt example. With more production comes lower prices, so, while yes, it does take $1500 to make one sandwich from scratch, if a company made many sandwiches, the price would lower to where they can sell them for just $5.
