When the seed lands on fertile soil its intended purpose begins to unfold. Weeds will need to be removed and care will need to be sustained though.
At every instant we take in information that comes from observation or deliberate research and this influx of information is knowledge. Even if it is misunderstood it still becomes part of our knowledge base for the time being until we learn otherwise. I like the use of the word "otherwise" because it includes the word 'wise.' Wisdom is knowledge that has gone through this process and is aligned with reality.
For all individuals knowledge is ever-present and readily accessible. The nature of knowledge is that it is ever-present and readily accessible. The role of knowledge is to satisfy the need to know. This loop of the nature and role of knowledge is self-sustaining if unimpeded.
When the nature and role of knowledge is unimpeded the economy functions at its highest potential.
In the divine economy model it is the axis of the "Nature and Role of Knowledge" that all things revolve around.
Whatever allows the free flow of knowledge serves the economy best. All interventionism constrains the free flow of knowledge hence it is harmful to the economy and to the people of the world.
