  • Aye.. indeed.
  • yes do you?
  • I think it is true, most of the time when I have bought something cheap, especially a tool, it has not even perform a small amount of the job that I needed it to do. In Spanish we say: "lo barato sale caro" In other words it takes more money to repair the damage done by an inferior product than it would had we purchased the quality product in the first place.
  • Usually. But it depends partly on what marketplace you're in. There are genuine bargains on E-bay, for instance, but rarely at Saks Fifth Avenue. I've gone to Santee Alley in L.A.'s garment district and found lovely things (shopping carefully because there IS a lot of schlock there). Also, there's the gift and giving environment. Sometimes we get - and give - wonderful things that have nothing to do with money.
  • Totally, I usally buy a mid to high namebrand items cause they are a better quality. ex.- If you but a brand new pair of sneakers from walmart and you buy a brand new pair of nikes you see the higher quality of the product.
  • Yes, it goes with effort, for both the buyer and the seller. But that doesn't mean there aren't things that aren't worth the huge price, physically and psychologically.
  • I totally agree with Galeanda; you can't put it much better than that. It does take effort on the physical and psychological levels. Sometimes though on both levels one does end up paying more than it's worth but sometimes we find bargains (again on both levels) that kind of balance our losses out.
  • In most cases, yes indeed!
  • In the main , yes I do.
  • Of course.
  • no if so there would less legal recourses .
  • yes. for example: i pay for a cookie and then i get a cookie.
  • Yes, if we buy something cheap, the quality is not going to be there.
  • Despite already selling one million handsets in the US since it launched in June, Apple has already cut the price of the iPhone in the region by a third to about £200. That makes it a very expensive stocking filler yet analysts remained confident the handset will fly off the shelves across Europe. Matthew Key, head of O2 UK, said he expected consumers to take to the iPhone as it was "leagues ahead" of equivalent devices and demand is strong. Mr Jobs said: "Sometimes you get what you pay for." http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/iphone-finally-arrives-but-its-neither-cheap-nor-g3-402835.html You don’t always get what you pay for: Researchers from the University of Edinburgh used pedigree data from over 4,000 racehorses to see whether stud fees - the price paid for a stallion to father a racehorse -are a useful measure of a stallion's genetic quality and its offspring's prize-winning potential. They found that while there are good genes to be bought, a stallion's fees are not an honest signal of his genetic quality and are a poor predicator of a foal's prize winning potential. Dr Alistair Wilson, University of Edinburgh said: "Although there are certainly good genes to be bought, it is not necessarily true that you get what you pay for." http://royalsociety.org/news.asp?id=7333
  • Indeed. Price largely denotes quality. A bargain is considered a good buy if it is sound and inexpensive. Being frugal I rarely purchase much, but what I do purchase is the best I can afford. Thus I live sparsely, but my home, furniture and life paraphernalia is good quality. I have two sofas, a leather that is twenty four years old, and a cream fabric, thirteen years old. Expensive at point of purchase, but good sense and economic in the long run.
  • Most of the time,yes.
  • Does that mean that if you only pay minimum wage the employers have no epectations of any real effort coming from the employees?
  • If you have hired me,yes,if you hired someone else,,probably not.
  • not always
  • No, Your always going to pay at least double what it is worth. We live in a very greedy world.
  • On occasion. Mostly you pay too much.
  • definitely
  • For the most part yes, but that doesn't mean paying a ridiculously high price means that it's necessarily better
  • Thieves disagree.
