How Much is That Doggie in the Window? The First Law of Marketing

October 9, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Why are diamonds more expensive than water?
After all, you can live without diamonds, but you can’t live more than three days without water.

This is known as the ‘Diamond-Water Paradox’ which economist Adam Smith [masked]) pondered yet was unable to solve. In 1871 Carl Menger published a new theory of value which contradicted Karl Marx’s labor theory of value. Menger believed that value is completely subjective: a product’s value is found in its ability to satisfy human wants.

Why the history lesson? Learning the value of value is imperative to be paid what you’re worth.
