Biological Markets

The Bio Revolution promises to transform entire value chains, from innovative approaches for materials and chemical production to creative energy production strategies. It could have an annual direct impact of between $200 billion to $800 billion or up to 19 percent of global GDP.

Biological markets are complex interactions among traders who exchange commodities for mutual gain. They feature competition within trader classes (through contesting or outbidding), with preference given to partners who offer the highest exchange value. They also involve mutualist elements like sharing prey between trading partners, as well as offering non-monetary incentives in order to build loyalty among their traders.

As biological trading does not typically utilize self-stabilizing contracts, conventional economic theory does not always apply. Biologists have discovered that strong specialization and division of labor may act as preadaptations mechanisms that reduce competition among potential trading partners – something humans might find useful as traders themselves.


Hoarding refers to the compulsive act of collecting things without reason, whether because they believe they will come in handy later, have sentimental value, or represent too good of a bargain to pass up. Humans are hoarding at an alarming rate. Hoarding is associated with various illnesses including traumatic brain injuries, Tourette’s syndrome dementia ADHD generalized anxiety disorder; childhood poverty; loss of loved ones/social connections as well as financial trouble as a result of hoarding.

Price Sensitivity

Price sensitivity refers to how willing or unwilling consumers are to pay for goods and services they desire, such as handbags. Consumer preferences often differ between products; some consumers might pay more than expected for high-end handbags while others will settle for an affordable model.

Price sensitivity can be affected by several factors, including cost sharing, ease of comparison and perceived substitutes. For instance, buyers sharing registration fees at conventions may be less sensitive to those costs than if paying separately for them themselves.

Consumers tend to be less price-sensitive when they perceive an item or service to be limited or exclusive in quantity; StockX sells limited-edition Nike sneakers at a premium over their retail price; this pricing strategy directly correlates to consumers’ willingness to pay, making it a critical aspect for businesses when setting prices.
