Derived from the Latin compensate, "weigh together", which referred to the idea of balance: you are worth that much, I give you that much. But today, when everybody earn little no matter what they are worth, we with some suspicion who is paid very much. We have every reason to do so, but sometimes it would be nice, instead of asking "how much is it", asking "how much is worth". With zeros at zero cost, is likely to conclude very little.
