If you are a die-hard Beatles fan you may be tempted to say the value is infinite. Suppose the bass guitar is being auctioned off and the current bid is $1,000. If you bid $1,100, I know your maximum willingness-to-pay is more than $1,100. The bid keeps going up and is now at $3,300. You keep bidding, so I know you value it more than $3,300. Now suppose the bids reach $5,500, and you stop bidding. I now know your maximum willingness-to-pay for the bass guitar is between $3,300 and $5,500. That, from an economist’s point-of-view, is how much you value the guitar.

You might want to say nothing, because the ticket was free, but you would be wrong.
