That’s very much my experience too. I’ve been very busy these last couple of weeks, but I wanted to give this a go. I wandered around as if it’s a weird curio museum, but didn’t really find anything I’d want to buy and take home. A strange experience, but not one that I’d spend any money or time on.

I like your idea of offering others money to do (or stop doing) something — that thought never crossed my minds. And it is remarkable (well from my position of ignorance) that nobody has ever accepted. I’m going to borrow that for a future story here (on valuing things)! :-) The interaction between market and social domains is something that has long fascinated me.

This is something that cries out for more experimentation!
