This is particularly true for the Internet of Things (IoT) and, jargon or not, it won’t become a reality unless innovators find ways to make money with it.

Knowledge Is as Valuable as Physical Capital

Knowledge Is as Valuable as Physical Capital | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
One of the greatest errors made by opponents of free economies is to disparage and attack the idea of private capital. Without capital, production is only about immediate consumption, not about building for the future.
