- Signal Value — the red car, book’s cover, the beautiful wife.
- Use Value — the dependable car.
- Labor Value — really a cost, the cost of the labor necessary to create the good.
- Experiance Value — sometimes called entertainment value, i.e. the experiance of going to Starbucks is more than the quality of the coffee.
- Option Value — all the things the buyer imagines he can do with the good.
- Salvage Value
- Net Present Value — a quant’s means of discounting the sum of future benefits generated by the good via the owner’s discount (or interest) rate.
