Can anyone give me idea what exactly a meta-commodity means, so that I can understand the following sentence?
We should remember that food constitutes a meta-commodity that cannot be treated merely according to economic calculations.
Does it mean a sacred stuff, like amulet or keris --the Javanese dagger? But even we can calculate the economic value, the market price, of keris, no?
