    DescriptionWhen almost anything we want is available to buy at the click of mouse and so much content is available for free, is the digital changing how we value things?

    Aleks Krotoski explores our sense of worth in this new world where the only thing that's scarce is scarcity itself. Do we connect with our possessions differently and in the end what is it that makes something valuable to us.
