Is it worth it?
For many people, money, which seems so concrete in its value, does not really hold value in and of itself. That can get them in financial trouble if they don’t have another way to value goods and services.
This thread talks about the system on person used after filing bankruptcy to determine whether something was worth it or not. In his case, he used his time- is this worth working X number of hours?
Other people use favorite goods- is this worth 5 cases of beer?
Whatever system you use, it’s a way of assigning value.
