Value

A measure of worth. Value is generally expressed in monetary terms. For example, the value of a house may be $100,000. Generally, the value of a product depreciates over time, though it sometimes appreciates instead (notably in real estate). How easily one can sell a product for its value helps determine how liquid the product is.

value

the money worth of a PRODUCT or ASSET. Value is measured in terms of the PRICE which buyers are prepared to pay for the product or asset. The amount which they are prepared to pay depends upon the benefits which they expect to derive from consuming or owning the item. See PRICE-QUALITY TRADEOFF, PSYCHOLOGICAL PRICING, VALUE CREATED MODEL, CONSUMER SURPLUS.

value

the money worth of an ASSET or PRODUCT. Early economists such as Adam SMITH and David RICARDO suggested that the value of an asset or product depended upon the amount of LABOUR needed to produce it, while later economists like William JEVONS emphasized that the UTILITY of a product to a consumer determined its value. Nowadays, economists accept that both supply and demand factors are important in determining the value of a product, by establishing a MARKET PRICE for it. See also CONSUMERS’ SURPLUS, VALUE ADDED, PARADOX OF VALUE.
