Hall’s Rule of Social Order – #187
There is a big difference between cost and worth and they should never be confused.
Just because a shirt costs $990 does not mean it is worth $990, or anything near that! There are so many examples of materialism where people pay so much more than the practical value of an item. Even if you ignore the extreme situations and markups, look at how much time people spend shopping around for ANYTHING. The fact that a bottle of medicine at costco is 70x cheaper than the same drug elsewhere, or a HDMI cable is $60 at Best Buy but $4 on amazon is ridiculous.527 views
