The way value is perceived sometimes baffles me. There is, of course, the problem of actual value versus perceived value in many instances. Many people are simply predisposed to assume that an item that costs more must absolutely be a better item than one that costs less and they will absolutely stand by this belief with no factual bearing. Of course, if you have been paying even a small amount of attention while living your life, then you know this is not always the case. There are plenty of really bad high budget movies, restaurants with five star pricing and two star food and a plethora of consumer goods aimed to make you pay for the name rather than the quality of the product. We tend to see this quite a bit when high end lines go mainstream. Pricing doesn’t drop, but quality certainly does.

 

Then there is the entirely opposite phenomena. If you ask just about anyone on the street if a cup of coffee at Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts costs more, they will almost always answer Starbucks. Not surprising, since Starbucks made their name with higher end half-caf pumpkin mocha latte macciatos with a shot of vanilla, soy milk foam and a dusting of cocoa and cinnamon and just one dollop of whipped cream placed to one side (by the way, I have come to the conclusion that the length of your order at Starbucks seems to be directly inverse to the amount of time I want to spend in your presence). But, a CUP OF COFFEE costs approximately the same at either. Unless you are at a mall…..where either could charge a ridiculous amount, since you are a captive audience. The point being, cost does NOT dictate quality, but if you feel the need to spend more for an item of equal or lesser quality, please, by all means, be my guest.
