: Does that mean an olympic swimming pool in your backyard is worth more than a luxury yacht? Or is a loaf of bread more important than the pool? If there were a pool, then would the bread be worth more than a yacht, or is that only when you are drowning?

My point was that needs* and use-values are variable, and that they cannot be rigidly hierarchised in any essential way- they will always change.

Regarding G.S.T- (General Sales Tax-? Whatever, Convict VAT) I suspect the poultry industry has lobbied for exception, to protect farming industry or something.
