Of the two choices my preference is for the latter.

High school economics teaches that demand rises as prices drop, assuming a
certain amount of elasticity in demand.
If this is applicable here, shouldn't it follow that minimizing prices might
*increase* mass synchronous demand (as opposed to the result of artificial
price inflation)? If not, why? If so, what is our suggestion of a throttling
mechanism to deal with the increase in demand?
