The value of Change

The value of change is highlighted in the current environment of the Internet. Unlike biotechnology, which caused many people to see both risk and reward, the Internet brings information that is fast and free. Connectedness is seen as an unmitigated positive value, and studies that show the positive effect of the number of network nodes are cited in both the academic and the popular press. Perhaps the speed and magnitude of the creation of wealth has been important in society's recognition of the value of change. Weakness in the protectionist power of unions in the face of new technology has accompanied envy and frequent emulations of the capitalist system. These factors have given people comfort about change.
