Personal Data is transforming the market of transactions of value between institutions and individuals. Chairman of the International Personal Data Trade Association, James Felton Keith explains the moral and economic implications of documenting and tracking everything in the known world to create value from knowledge. His latest book Personal Data: The People’s Asset Class is a group of essays that establish the provable fact that people have an intrinsic value. JFK makes an argument that legal ownership of the information that disseminates from people is the only way to achieve real economic inclusion. He says “knowledge about you is powerful, and all knowledge about you has a monetary value”.
