The comparison between rich and poor people is a topic with an enormous gap. The bridge between the two is longer than most see it, and is increasing steadily. Michael Sandel wrote a book discussing his opposition to the market society in the United States. The focus of Sandel’s book lies within the title, What Money Can’t Buy. He believes that everything seems to be for sale and that we are a society that revolves around the idea of every person for themselves. Sandel also states that inequality is rising faster than ever. Even though everything is for sale in this day and age, that does not mean everyone is able to purchase whatever they want. Inequality comes in many forms like race, gender and age.

In Denver, people can pay anywhere from twenty dollars to thousands of dollars to get their doctor answering them around the clock. In Tennessee on the other hand, poor people are being told that they are just going to have to deal with not being supplied with affordable health care anymore. An argument that can be made from this is that all people should be provided with an affordable health care. It is something every person needs no matter their age or income. Richer people should not live a more luxurious life when it comes to health care. Incentives can drive normal people to do crazy things. Though sometimes, the incentives come in the form of brand new cars. From a business article in The Huffington Post, Jenna Em describes the Toronto housing market as being a “manic housing phenomena”. Homes in Toronto are being sold for no cheaper than $850,000. So already from the start, the only people that can afford these houses are people with more money. But even for a rich family, a house for that much is pushing it. That is why some housing communities are offering incentives like the buyers choice of hardwood floors, kitchens with all new upgrades, or fully finished basements.

Our topic for this essay is to evavaluate Oscar Wilde's think which sounds:' Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing'. I will apply convince to this think.
In my mind everybody know the prices of things which are needed to our lives. We know how much cost one bread, a bottle of water, etc. But not always we know how much people must work above these things. They often worked very hard but we think:’ These are routine in our daily live'. It's not right. Here we can see how is really.
Wisdom. This is something what we can't count or share. We can't buy it. Wisdom isn't for buy and for sell. We read a lot of stupid and expensive books or newspaper. They don't give us anything. Maybe little fun. But we have fun on TV, DVD. So why we buy something what doesn't give us nothing? Perhaps we should begin learn some clever experiences.
Third and probably the best example for convince us that Wilde's think is right is friendship.
If we've got a lot of money, we would think that we have everything. That's absolutely not right. Many people falsely claim that they are our friends. But we must be careful. In our country people say:' Real friends we say in poverty'. And I thing it absolutely right.
We can't too buy new friends. In this example it seen that 'Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing'.
All in all we can buy or sell nearly everything but we will never receive new valuable, purposes, experience and directions. I accept with Oscar Wilde's think and I hope so after my essay you will agree that 'Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing'. Decision belong only to you and I aren't allowed to change your things and valuables.
