Price As Signal Meets NotConsoleGame

Is it just me, but is there a bit of scaryNeff that tongodeon points at the Price as Signal in his article on Every midget has her price. while there is this on going discussion about what is the role of Financialization of NotConsoleGames.

It is UGLY ENOUGH that I have been ranting at my Liberal Friends
Patriotism Is what you get
When you didn't get the Fair Market Value
with regards to the current political posturings of the 'free marketeers' and the current WhateverOnWhomever. But to have it bounce around again in the middle of this with NotConsoleGames...

I think the critical question nested in the midst of merde kvetch
i should point out that i understand the point of the diamond -- it's the same reason many women want a guy to spend money on them when they're first dating. it's a measure of how much he values her. it's the most crass and soulless possible measure, but there it is. and i guess when you're shallow and passionless, and you're dating shallow and passionless men, displays of financial largesse are the only way you can tell he "cares."
while she also notes that there is the problem with dating 'losers' because she imposed no expectations on them....

So how do we go about solving the problem of what 'price signals' are really a part of the process, and which of them are a part of the problem.
