Jevons broke off his studies of the natural sciences in London in to work as an assayer in Sydney, where he acquired an interest in political economy. For Jevons, the utility or value to a consumer of an additional unit of a product is inversely related to the number of units of that jecons he already owns, at least beyond some critical quantity.
