Human beings want things above and beyond the necessities and depending on how bad they want them determines value..........pretty simple logic really.........unless it's a devout socialist looking at it. Market value is the only fair way where humans are involved and for myself, the wanting can be for more pleasurable than the having. I give nothing to charity voluntarily not because I am stingy or uncaring but because my government has mandated various charitable entitlements to be taken from my earnings making me look like a very charitable guy indeed.
Anyone see that villosa that sold last week for $600+ on the 'Bay? It appeared to be a well maintained plant of a reasonable size for a decent price even though I wasn't jumping in. I enjoy just seeing them out there for sale and watching the feeding frenzy that usually occurs within the last few minutes. I saw a small ed' and some other interesting varieties selling there lately also.
