A restaurant in New York is creating a buzz: not because of its chef, or its food. It's the prices. The Exchange Bar & Grill will charge for food and drink the same way Wall Street does. Demand for a particular drink goes up, so does the price — and the price falls for other drinks. Patrons can keep track on a flat screen "ticker." But there is a caveat: The restaurant opens April 1.

LINDA WERTHEIMER, host:

What do we think that means?

It's MORNING EDITION.
