Honorarium
An HONORARIUM is an ex gratia payment (i.e., a payment made without the giver recognizing himself as having any liability or legal obligation made to a person for his or her services in a volunteer capacity or for services for which fees are not traditionally required). This is used by groups, such as schools or Sports clubs , to pay coaches for their costs. Another example includes the payment to guest speakers at a conference meeting to cover their travel, accommodation, or preparation time. Services for Christian Church funerals and/or memorial services are often paid by honorarium, as the minister , musicians , organist , soloist and others of out care do not have a set fee for services to grieving families. Likewise, wedding officiants are sometimes paid through honorarium also

Ostentation
CONSPICUOUS CONSUMPTION is the spending of money on and the acquiring of luxury goods and services to publicly display economic power—of the income or of the accumulated wealth of the buyer. To the conspicuous consumer, such a public display of discretionary economic power is a means of either attaining or maintaining a given social status . The development of Thorstein Veblen 's sociology of conspicuous consumption produced the term INVIDIOUS CONSUMPTION, the ostentatious consumption of goods that is meant to provoke the envy of other people; and the term CONSPICUOUS COMPASSION, the deliberate use of charitable donations of money in order to enhance the social prestige of the donor, with a display of superior socio-economic status
