(*information obtained from the book “A More Beautiful Question”)
Questions are rising in value while answers are declining because known answers are everywhere and are easily accessible. Although, we are drowning in all of this information; even the value of explicit information is dropping.
Tony Wagner says, Knowledge is now becoming as commodity. A commodity is a basic good used in commerce that is interchangeable with other goods of the same type. I would agree with this because knowledge can be very resourceful, especially the right knowledge. For example, having knowledge about the stock market or anything that makes money; can turn my knowledge into an asset because now I can share my knowledge and be paid for the information I obtain.
As Paul Bottino says, the real value is what you can do with that knowledge.
