When: Fri., Jan. 8, 7 p.m. 2010

We want too much and pay too much for it, and an object's price bears no relation to its value, argues economist Raj Patel in his new book The Value of Nothing: How to Reshape Market Society and Redefine Democracy, which he discusses at A Great Good Place for Books (6120 La Salle Ave., Oakland) on Friday, Jan. 8. In his vision of a better world, humankind curbs its desires and social equality reigns. 7 p.m., free. GreatGoodPlace.Indiebound.com
