The Preamble outlines the purpose of this book, which is about how ritualized ideas of what constitutes the material world create diverse notions of the meaning of exchange, reciprocity, and fair trade. What comprises a just remuneration for things trade or taken? The book consists of four exercises designed to challenge by provoking questions about how value might be variably established within cultures or local groups that are at odds with economic trends.

Keywords:   material world, exchange, reciprocity, fair trade, remuneration, economic trends, diachronic, culture
