Price is a public matter — a negotiation between supply and demand. A thing’s price is set in competition. So the price of a car is determined by how much some people want it, how much they are willing to pay, and how ready the manufacturer is to sell. It’s a public activity: lots of people are involved in the process, but your voice is almost never important in setting the price.

Value, on the other hand, is a personal, ethical and aesthetic judgment — assigned finally by individuals, and founded on their perceptiveness, wisdom and character.

The difference between price and value – and other essential tools of cultivating a healthy relationship with money. (via explore-blog)

Our world is moving from one of nation-states to one of city-states. Rather than the future being one of the US versus China, it is going to be Silicon Valley vs. Beijing or Chicago vs. Paris. Each dominant city will define its region. With the “flattening” of the world, Chicago is no longer vying with US cities like New York for influence, commerce and jobs, but other major cities in the world.

This is a clear long time direction that I definitely agree on. The obstacles are some of the core structural elements that keeps the nation states together. I think about e f the national currencies and their base, the national monopoly of violence and the legally defined and internationally presumed national “ownership” of citizens. These things are gradually changing but there is great uncertainty if un uncertain and crisis filled future will play towards the cities or the nation states. The financial crisis e g played, at least in the short term, played out in the favour of the nation state.

Transparent business practices, social-conscious brands, and being design-focused.

For brands that operate solely online, namely fashion retail e-commerce websites, it is important for them to employ a strong sense of branding and a stellar user experience in order to differentiate from the masses. Since the online marketplace is heavily saturated with products, each desperately vying for online customers, it is easy to get lost and confused in the midst of looking for the right product and website to shop at. 

Companies such as Fab and Everlane are great examples of online e-commerce websites that have found great success, traction, and customer loyalty. What all of these online brands have in common is their user-centric focus, a strong understanding of their target audience, and simplicity in navigation that results in a delightful experience.
