Should knowledge be rewarded with greater wealth?
Wealth is earned. Most of the time that is. Or half.
Maybe the ability to apply knowledge.
But not knowledge alone.
I've met some really smart people who had no ability to be useful.
Depending on how you use that knowledge. People would pay handsomely for a smart person to run their operation.
Rewarded by who?
It depends on the demand for that knowledge. For example, I know a lot about my favorite baseball team, but that shouldn't be as valuable as knowing how to fly a plane.
It is in schools.
Thank you to the unions.
It depends on whether a person is productive and uses it wisely.
Knowledge shouldn't be rewarded. What you do with it should.
Yes, in some cases. If someone has specialized knowledge that is needed at a workplace, this should be compensated.
Doesn't it depend on how or if the knowledge is used?
