Abstract

The world economic system is premised on the notion of fluctuations in value and capitalist societies have accepted the stock market as the appropriate indication of this phenomenon. Our acceptance of this daily variance in financial worth can be extended to fluctuations in the value of objects as well. To complicate matters, an object can be said to have exchange (monetary) value and singular (sentimental) value which are not always related.
