    Time? Not really
    You can spend hours making mud ice creams, but all the time won't apply any value to them.

    I suggest you search about the theory of marginalism, by Menger and other Austrian economists.

            Theory Brother Austin makes sense. But the richest character in video games is my character in GTA V.

              You're misreading the chart at 16:35. The d there stands for pence, not days. As the webpage explains above that chart, pre-decimal English currency denominations were abbreviated L/s/d, from the Latin libra/solidus/denarius, Roman coins whose names and relative values were used for medieval coins. Thus, a goose would cost *3* days' labor, not 6, a pound of cheese would be a quarter day's labor, etc.

                What about Maple Syrup and Honey in Mario? Both are produce on a farm and both need flowers for Polarization so if Fire Flower is are Sunflowers? Sunflowers are use to make Oil
                that you can cook with that catch fire that might maker Mario and Luigi with more Money
                because they had more Money because had Oil all is are Dandelions they make Alcohol from that!

                  I really respect you going back and basically redoing the first video for the sake of accuracy. That's the kind of pointlessness and precision that I come here for.

                    While it might be $89 to kill a werewolf or any other kind of abomination, Witchers tend to be highly desirable one night stand lovers. So you are likely to get $89 for killing that werewolf AND some booty from one of the local women.

                      Hey Austin, Akiva here! I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to spoil your final video. I know, the final video will still be VERY much worth the watch! But the all time richest character? Scrooge McDuck. How did I arrive at this conclusion? He is, canonically, a MULTI-TRILLIONAIRE in today's currency. Sincerely, Akiva.

                              Pro tip, retail corn sucks and is super overpriced. Buy from a stand on the side of the road. That’s where the best corn is.

                                  but you can get way more emeralds by making an auto melon/pumkin farm then making a zombie convert a villager into a zombie villager then cure him with a weakness potion and a golden apple you can get a price of 1 pumkin per emerald so then steve would be much richer

                                            We're learning about The Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution in Social Studies so when I heard Adam Smith my nerd brain took action.

                                                  i think it would be fair if it was how much they made per hour, because whatever methods they use to gain money they aren't going to do it 24/7 til they die. what about breaks and sleep etc? i mean really we expect Pokemon trainers to work til 70m yikes

                                                                                      The "d" is referring to the pence in the old system of pounds, shillings and pence. It's from the Latin _denarius_ ; of the money used during the Roman Empire.

                                                                                      If you were to say that the laborer makes a pence a day, then that's fine, but I feel that I must bring this up as it might cause confusion. You were probably tired at that point, so it's okay. Thanks!

And a soul appeared almost as if to bring back undertale you had to give your soul to gaster or the creator and they brought your soul to deltarune as the conscience
