How do YOU assign value?

A post at TreeHugger asks a good question, why do we assign monetary value to some things, but not others?  In particular, he asks why, when shopping for a new car, do most people put so much value on things like leather interior and stereo systems, but not so much value on how much impact the car and it’s use has on our environment.

As Sami Grover states, “The concept of value is almost entirely subjective”. The sad truth is that most people assign value based on what the market tells them is valuable.  So be a free thinker and choose for yourself what’s really important.  Do you want heated seats?  Or a cleaner planet for future generations?
