Money is an invention, anyway. It's all psychology. If you feel like high prices are demeaning, don't pay them.
A gin and tonic cost me $15 the other day. Add up all the costs and the markup is exorbitant. Should I write a post complaining about it? Why would I? Such a post would say more about me than about the phenomenon.
Everyone has a different way of evaluating what they should spend their discretionary income on. I, personally, imagine a society where anyone willing to pay $100k on speakers decided to give half of that expenditure away to a needy cause. My guess is that listening to $50k speakers with the knowledge that $50k had gone to help someone(s) really deserving would make the experience a lot better.
