According to The World Bank, 80% of the developed world’s wealth lies in human capital. Today, knowledge workers themselves own the firm’s means of production, in their heads. This is a seismic shift in our economy, the ramifications of which we are still trying to comprehend. Thinking in terms of human capital investors lends dignity and respect to the value of each person.
