I completely disagree with this argument, but am open to changing my mind with some sort of reasoning or evidence. All it takes is one person seeing an opportunity to exploit an inefficient market and taking initiative. It happens all the time, every day, in markets large and small, broad and narrow. I am not aware of any significant barriers to entry in the timeshare reseller market.
