Great Big Stuff (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels)

by Matthew Rousu

Freddie is asked what he wants - and he doesn't hesitate to answer. He wants all sorts of things. This would be a good song to play to introduce the concept of marginal utility and/or the marginal utility of wealth. If you don't have much money, receiving $10,000 can be life-changing. But after you're already rich, how much better off would you be if $10,000 means you obtain your own personal Zamboni?
