Sometimes I'll just say "that movie SUCKED. But the visual effects were AWESOME!".
This is the reason that for the Academy Awards each category, save Best Picture, is voted on only by the members in that category. A movie can absolutely suck but have great music or amazing editing. The people who work in a field know for what to look when they watch and know good work when it happens.

Not if you agree to those terms. If the terms of attending a concert are "no recording, filming or photography" then you agree to be stopped by attending the concert. Don't like those terms? Don't go.
if they're smuggled in, returning them after the concert.
Why stop there? Put up a sign stating that cellphones observed during the concert will be confiscated and turned over to authorities whereupon the owner will be charged with some minor crime/fined if they show up to retrieve it.

What do you think happened to our economy to achieve our current 5% unemployment rate?
Workers gave up looking for work and are thus no longer considered unemployed. They still don't have a job, they just don't count anymore.
No, they don't. Or, at least, they don't do it *automatically*. That's what competition is about.
If a government entity raises the minimum wage you can bet every employer with a minimum wage employee will raise prices accordingly automatically, and as a group. There is no competition when everybody's input cost is the same.
