520    This book starts with a simple premise: there is a price 
       behind each choice that we make, whether we're deciding to
       have a baby, drive a car, or buy a book. We often fail to 
       appreciate just how critical prices are as motivating 
       forces shaping our lives, but their power becomes clear 
       when distorted prices steer our decisions the wrong way. 
       Eduardo Porter takes us on a global economic adventure, 
       from comparing the relative prices of a vote in corrupt 
       São Tomé and in the ostensibly aboveboard United States to
       assessing the cost of happiness in Bhutan to deducing the 
       dollar value we assign to human life. He weaves together 
       the constant--and often unconscious--cost and value 
       assessments we all make every day. While exploring the 
       story behind the price of everything from marriage and 
       death to mattresses and horsemeat, Porter draws unexpected
       connections that bridge a wide range of disciplines and 
       cultures.--From publisher description.
