objects of desire

what do we covet? Why is Louie Vuitton and Ferrari considered so high class: price, marketing, quality (all of the above).

What if LV made garbage bags and Ferrari made dust pans? Would you be able to sell them for $1000? Would they be better than any other garbage bags or dust pans?

Why do we covet products that are based on class and money? Why don't we covet warm days and walking the dog? What have we become, is there a duality?

*An artist actually made a computer rendering of a Louie Vuitton garbage bag and it caused quite a stir on the blogosphere!
