Money has corrupted us. We no longer understand what it's worth,
I really wish more people on Patrick.net would comment on the article.
It's the simple issue of money versus value. What is witnessing the the first basket made by my child in a basketball game? For me, priceless. Ditto things like watching her in a school play, when she got married, graduation, etc. Some would argue, some do. You can witness that basketball game OR you can meet with a client on that same day and time in a location 3000 miles away, the choice is yours BUT you also know that if you refuse to meet with the client your job is in dire peril.
This house is up for sale at 850K pounds (sorry, don't know how to make the pound sign on my keyboard). Is it worth it? Not really, but it's no different than some properties listed for sale in NY or SF (or other parts of CA). What's it worth? It's worth whatever someone is willing to pay. If it sits for six months with no offers (or offers that are significantly lower) then chances are they will re-list at a lower price. However, if like in SF, some idiot with more money than brains comes along and makes an offer at higher than asking price (to ensure that they get it) - well, can't blame the owner for taking it.
It's a simple matter of looking at a situation and finding your value for it. It's also a matter of understanding what your financial situation is. Not only would I NOT pay $500K for a house in SF, I couldn't afford to buy a home at that price. I can afford a $150K home, but there aren't any in SF (and if there were ... I don't even want to think of the neighborhood or the condition of the house).
Value is in the mind of the person, I fear many people have a (at least to me) perverted scale of value. As for England ... never been there, not sure I'm even interested in visiting. Nice to have you on this board however.

Illinois House Committee Wants Taxpayers to Spend $100 Million on Obama Library,
When you think about it, it's not a bad price. You build a HUGE, monster size building, mostly chrome and glass I think. I'd have two push-the-button to hear displays. One would recite - "Uh, well, uh, um" for about 15 to 30 minutes (although you could do that one for about 12 hours straight). The other one would be his greatest lies, starting with the infamous - "If you like your insurance you can keep it". Yeah, I can't wait to avoid that presidential library.
