Pizza Production Possibilities Frontier in Madison

The protest against changes in union bargaining rules in Wisconsin are getting a lot of press. Since, the issue is complex and I don't have a lot of time today. I thought I would instead focus on Ian's Pizza. Ian's is the closest pizza place to the capital where the protests are going down and people from around the country and globe are calling in orders to feed the masses of protesters. In fact the orders have gotten so numerous that Ian's has closed to the public and is now exclusively making pizzas for those camped out at the capital (link).

From their Facebook page it looks like Ian's it at its pizza production frontier. They said they have not set up a Paypal account and are only taking orders one at a time so they don't get more orders than they can fill.

It's also a good example of comparative advantage, and trust me Ian has a comparative advantage in making pizza. Next time you are in Madison grab a slice, I recommend the Mac & Cheese pizza or Buffalo Chicken.
