The Value of Nothing

Raj Patel took the title of his new book from an Oscar Wilde quote:

"Nowadays, people know the price of everything and the value of nothing."

Wilde said that in 1891. Funny how while everything changes, somehow nothing changes...

Anyway, here's Patel talking about his book.

I haven't had the opportunity to read this yet (the local library doesn't yet have a copy, and I've been spending way too much money on books lately to buy a copy right now), but all the reviews I've heard and read have been positive.

  1. Great selection of relevant author/speaker. I've heard Patel on the Thom Hartmann show (very progressive talk show and worth checking out)and on booktv. There's a great wave of awareness rising with all the devastation -- we have to change our perspective on what's important. I look for ways to practice this new view and find people and places reflecting the culture of relationship.
