Ideas and real value – the power of an idea and this is one of the most possibly counter- intuitive points that economists have been making for centuries, is that real wealth does not reside in physical things. It resides in imagination, creativity, innovation, and ideas, rather than things that are just physical representations of those ideas. It kind of runs against our intuition, doesn’t it?Just recently, WhatsApp was bought for approximately $19 billion . WhatsApp was forty guys and fifteen contract programmers in Georgia, the country not the state.  When you can create a company with less than 50 employees, or whatever it was in total that they had, and be bought for $19 billion, which might be more than the market cap of Boeing, or some other massive company, that tells you the world has definitely changed from an atom economy to the economy in mind.
