Love For Sale?

Economist has a way of putting a price tag on everything.  How much is a cup of coffee worth?  a trip to the paradise? a human life?

The saying that everything has its price does not square well with me.  Taken literally that means one can afford everything as long as he or she is rich.  Everything!  But we all know that is not true.

There are things that are simply not for sale.  Friendship, love, trust and happiness come to mind, right off the bat.  There are cheap substitutes like acquaintance, sex, obedience, and amusement.   But that is what they are cheap substitutes.

Unless the true costs is understood, it is easy to mistaken the cheap substitutes for the real things.

Is everything up for sale?  Where is the limit?  Phrase it another way, can money buy everything?
