Depends on how tight supply is. If you have say10% more drivers than you need everyone makes minimum wage. But, everyone takes a 15 minute break at the same time and the shortage takes over an hour to work it's self out.
Nope, price fixing is maintaining a specific level, much like how light bulbs where downgraded to have a vastly shorter lifespan. This is simply reducing supply much like De Beers or OPEC which may qualify as collusion, but not price fixing as the market still defines the final price.
Just poorly translated.
The railways estimate that a train with six solar-powered coaches could save around 21,000 litres (5,547 gallons) of diesel every year, worth around $108,000. 5,547 * 3$/g * 6 = 99,846$, which seems legit.
“Flooding is probably not quite the right word to use in this case,” says Cary Fowler, who helped create the seed vault. “In my experience, there’s been water intrusion at the front of the tunnel every single year.”
The actual statement is:
One view is that a free market is a system in which the prices for goods and services are determined by the open market and consumers, in which the laws and forces of supply and demand are free from any intervention by a government, price-setting monopoly, or other authority.
So, no you don't have a Free Market after a Monopoly shows up.

This year they've finally gone insane: you'll find an Apple 1, Commodore 65 (really!), Enigma machine, the guy who invented C++, DEC PDP-8 raster graphics.... who needs sanity when you've got all that? The event benefits Vintage Computer Federation, which a national user group (and 501c3 nonprofit) for collectors/hobbyists. Kids get in free.
Some of that extra processing power is useful for more than just games. Blender, for example, is a 3D modelling, animation, and rendering package that will use the CUDA cores in these graphics cards to drastically speed up rendering calculations. This can be tremendously useful to someone doing 3D graphics or video editing.
You're thinking of "Destiny of the Daleks" with the Daleks pitted in a war of logic vs. logic against the Movellans. Supposedly the idea was that both 'robot' cultures were at a stalemate because each calculated the perfect maneuver and counter-maneuver and neither could gain the upper hand. The Daleks decided to unearth their creator, Davros, who had been buried in a cave-in at the end of "Genesis of the Daleks", hoping that he would endow them with some quality to defeat the Movellans. The Movellans had foreseen this move and were attempting to thwart the Daleks. In the middle of this, the Doctor and a freshly-regenerated Romana appear to rain on everyone's parade.
