Hey, How Much Does This Thing Cost?

How much does something cost? When we hear that word, our automatic assumption is that we are talking about money, a numerical value, some tangible currency to use as a frame of reference. How much, say, does it cost to watch an episode of The Game of Thrones (GoT)? There are many angles we can …
