This chapter examines some of the analyses of the dynamics of social value that have appeared in the economic literature. It also shows what is missing from them, and what can be derived from social and anthropological theory to fill these gaps. Topics discussed in this chapter are: social sources of well-being; the ritual nature of social value; and the contribution of social theory.

Keywords:   social value, social theory, anthropological theory, well-being
