"‘Ideas create wealth’. Not gold, oil, silicon or hard work. Thought is primary. Not always understood." #QotD



“A preoccupation with pursuing growth—or some modified version of the growth ideal—therefore means a preoccupation with ideas, a preoccupation with cultivating human reason, and a preoccupation with the notion that man should realize, perfect, and extend his nature as a generator of powerful ideas that can change the world.’’
    "‘Ideas create wealth’. Not gold, oil, silicon or hard work. Thought is primary. Not always understood."

~ Tyler Cowen, from his book Stubborn Attachments: A Vision for a Society of Free, Prosperous, and Responsible Individuals
