There is a difference between capitalism and extortion. My kid attended swim meet and hosting team(ATAC) decided to extort parents for money, by publishing heat sheets within restricted area and not publishing meet on the meet mobile(paid app) like every other swim team does when hosting meets. So effectively parents were in the dark about heats and lanes their little swimmers compete in, and only way to get through was to buy printed version from them for $5 and more over they only accept cash.
