Market Value

A thing of value today may be of no value tomorrow.  “They” tell me that the markets change, its all about supply and demand.  Thats just the way it is.  That may be true, although I don’t buy that it is.  But let us for the moment suppose that it is true.  For that specific thing at least.  The next logical jump is that everything is subject to valuation via the market.  That too is the way it is.  Which I buy even less.  But let us work with that for the moment as well.  There are many “things” besides things.  For example, a human being.  So now I ask, what exactly is a human being worth in a market driven economy?  A “thing” of variable value, precious today, worthless tomorrow?  Is that the way it is?
