* there would be no money, therefore no greed, people would still work, to make things, but out of the goodness of their hearts! heh

* I would be able to get some form of tan, and have no freckles.

* It would be perfectly acceptable to go to have a nap anywhere, anytime.

* Music is played in all toilets.

* There would be no need to work after lunchtime.

* Weekends are from Friday to Monday, normal working week Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.

In a perfect world price would be set by the actual value.. Not the need..

If you ask an economist, it's determined simply by the interaction of supply and demand. It's what people are willing to pay for it in a free market. Simple as that.

You're right DC..
The sad truth is that the price of those throw away surgical masks has skyrocketed here in Ontario due to the fear of SARS....
