The Worth of Goods: Valuation and Pricing in the Economy by Jens Beckert and Patrik Aspers
English | September 5, 2011 | ISBN-10: 0199594651 | 352 pages | PDF | 1.7 MB

In response, The Worth of Goods takes a sociological approach to the perennial but timely question of what makes a product valuable.
