Continuing my work on “information as an asset,” I ran across this definition (from Investopedia):
“An asset is anything of value that can be converted into cash.”
While I’m finding overwhelming consensus that information deserves asset status, I’ve yet to find a generally accepted theory for quantifying its value. (Or any theory, for that matter!) Is this because it can’t be directly monetized? I’d love to get your take, in the comments below and/or via social media. Thanks!
