Toe value ol an economic qaan
tity is another economic quantity
for which it can be exchanged
Money like every other commodity
can have no exchangeable value if
no one will receive it. A thing is
worth what it will fetch, is true of
money"lnthe same degree as of any
ordinary commodity. Two bnshele
of corn are worth one dollar, is
correct economic statement of the
relative values of corn and money
It would be equally correct to say
dollar is worth two bushels of corn
The yalne of the commodity, corn,
is found in the one case in the
other quantity which is called a
dollar; in the other case, the value
of the dollar is found in the value
of ihe corn. The value of the one
is the equivalent of the value of the
other. On thiB ground it is possible
to effect the exchanging of products.
It is exchangeable value that
conceifidus when considering the
worth of money. Money is in
tended to make the exchanging of
products easy, and like any other
material or commodity, it will
exchange for what the parties to
transaction may thick it is worth.
If a customer buys a hat and pays
a dollar for it, he thinks that the
hat he receives has the value of the
dollar he gives. On the contrary,
the merchant thinks that the value
of the dollar he receives, is equiva
lent to the value of the hat he gives.
Each thinks that the value of the
one commodity is the equivalent of
the value of the other, and that the
exchange will be favorable to him
self. In each case the deBire to sell
must exceed the desire to keep, oth
erwise there will be no exchange.
It Evident that to effect an ex
change? commodities there must
be a communication of minds, and
a reciprocation of desires. One
mind, one desire, can not make an
exchange. A man can not trade
with himself. He must make ex
changes with somebody else. lie
must desire to possess the commod
ity which Bomebody else owns, and
the otter person or party must de
sire to possess the commodity he
owns. 'If a man were to bay a plug
of tobacco of himself, paying ten
cents for it, the possessor of the
money and the tobacco would be the
same after as before the pioceeding,
There wonld be no exchange of
products and consequently to call
such a proceeding a transaction
would be a misapplication of the
word. It would be not even a pro
ceeding. It would be a nothing,
and in an economic sense would
have the same signification as a
man's lifting himself over a fence
y means of his boot-straps has in a
It is concluded then that value is
a mental affection, and manifests
itself in exchanges only by tho com
munication of minds. It is condi
tioned by the degree of estimation
placed upon an article or commod
ity, the amount of the desire to
o n, or the intensity of the demand
to keep or obtain possession of the
commodity, If there is no desire or
demand for the commodity, it will
have no exchangeable value because
nobody will want it.
But as mental affections, degrees
of estimation, desires vary, it follows
that values placed upon the same
commodity must necessarily vary.
For example, suppose that a trader
has a horse which he desires to sell
and for which he sBks one hundred
dollars. Buyers come and examine
the horse. One thinks it worth
iighty dollars, another ninety doi-
ars, whilst a third sajs he will give
one hundred dollars for the horse.
It is evident in thiB supposed case,
that the three buyers either did pot
put the same value upon the horse,
or they put different degrees of value
on the hundred dollars. The one
offering eighty dollars evidently
yalued his money higher or the horse
lower than the one offering ninety
dollars, and each of these two his
money higher and the horse lower
than the one who gaye the hundred
dollars. The first desired the horse
to the amount of eighty dollar?, the
second to the amount of ninety dol
lars, and the third' to the amount of
one hundred dollars. If the desires
tc owi the horse were equal then
the three men put different values
on the money, 'ihe estimation in
which thev respectively held the
hundred dollars was not the same
To one eighty dollars had the same
value as ninety dollars had to the
second, and as a hundred dollars had
to the one - who purchased the
horse. This difference of desires is
f ally illustrated at any auction sale,
where purchases are made by bids.
- But a peculiarity about value, js
that tne value or a commodity is
always estimated in terms of some
other commodity. To say a thing is
worth, itself would have no meaning.
No one ever says seriously that a
pound of gold is worth a poucd of
gold, an ounce of silver is worth an
ounce of Bilver, a bat is worth a ha',
a bushel of corn is worth a bushel
of corn. Such expressions tell us
nothing. To Bay that an ounce of
silver is worth an ounce of Biiver
gives us no idea i f ih yalaeof sil
ver. To say that a pound of goid is
worth a pound of gold does not give
any information in regard to the
value of gold. To say, howeyer,!
that a dollar will purchase, or
worth two bushels of corn gives a
definice idea as to the value of the
dollar. Bushel is a definite meas
ure. The quantity it contains does
cot depend on the desires of men
It is fired. And one bushel being a
fixed and well-defined quantity, tw c
bushels are a well defined quantity,
and the value of a dollar is a fixed
and well-defined quantity. It is
two bushels of corn. A dollar is
worth two bushels of corn. Two
bushels of corn are worth
dollar. If the value of the
corn is Known, tne value or
the dollar is known. If the value
of the dollar is kno-n, the value of
the corn is known. The yalue of
the one is measured by the value of
the other, being conditioned by the
reciprocal desires of the parties con
cerned in the transaction.
