Demand is what determines value. So, how does demand for something like, this thing, get to such a ridicules level? In a word: hype. Large egos with marketing savvy propel the market beyond what a reasonable mind can comprehend as rational. But is anything worth $43 million?
Yes. Honor, integrity, fidelity, nobility, respect, reputation, truth, reliability, devotion, commitment, dignity, freedom, and other intangibles that most of us take for granted. All of the Mona Lisa’s, Yosemite’s, and Eiffel Towers in the world combined aren’t worth one honorable moment in the life of a president, or a pauper.
