You asking about the dynamics of the objective cost structure but not its
existence in itself. As I wrote before 'economic value' means a
scalarquantity that allow different goods and services to be compared
for the
purpose of managing resources.

What alternative theory are you proposing that explains this phenomena and
what --- if any --- are its testable claims? You are persistently being
unclear about this.
