Regular readers will remember that I've been on a bit recently about how we've stopped seeing things having any other value than an economic one:  it's become all about the benjamins

Jon reminded me today of this great sketch from the glory days of Monty Python.

If find yourself repeatedly translating stuff into economic value (like this "merchant banker"), then you might want to go have a lie down. The other kinds of value – social, cultural etc – are turning out to be just as important…
