THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING Solving the Mystery of Why We Pay What We Do

by | Read by Walter Dixon

Business & Finance • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

The author wants us to question the assumptions we make as consumers about the value of everything. From bottles in a landfill in India to the people who drink the soda in those bottles, Porter analyzes the myriad questions that face each of us as we make decisions about how we spend our time and our material resources. Narrator Walter Dixon infuses these existential questions with a sensitivity that engages readers in pondering answers rather than raising a sense of mounting guilt. As the author points out the connections among pollution, consumption, and personal wealth and examines how individual choice affects our daily behaviors, Dixon makes a familiar theme sound fresh and arresting.
