> the price expresses a point between high enough so you are willing to provide it and low enough for me to be willing to pay it.

That's true. And those points are determined by demand and supply.

> are you generally more willing to do a thing that took less time to learn?

Yes, that holds up as a general rule. Except for things I'm intrinsically interested in. It's a very strong heuristic, which was explained at length in the book "Thinking Fast, Thinking Slow"

> that would mean you would be just as willing to do a low-skilled job for low pay as a high-skilled job for high pay..

No, that's not following at all. It just means, in general, people rather choose the path of the smallest resistance.

But it's a multivariat problem figuring out what you'd do for a living. Different problem, although it's directly related to the supply of skilled and experienced workers.

> of course neither the time spent doing a thing nor the time spent learning determine the value of some work.

No, but it's a function of supply. See first point for explanation why it matters.

> generally speaking, learning should provide more value than the time and energy spent by learning.

That's a trivial point, which is still worth pointing out because I think many people do not get it.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
