VALUE: how does it affect you and your business?

I was almost traded for 60, long eye-lashed donkeys in Dounza, a Sahara desert-trading village in Mali, in 1996. Granted, they had the thick eyeliner type markings around their eyes and that sultry tannish-grey hide, but still, I am an educated, free woman – how did this ridiculous barter even begin?

It started because every human being has a unique relationship to the idea of VALUE.
