Diffusion: A catalyst for change
In chemistry, we learnt that diffusion is the movement of gases from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration. What this means in simple terms is that gases move from a place where they are abundant to a place where they are few or non existent.
Another word to capture the essence of this article is a word in physics called resonance. Resonance is described as the lengthening effect of sound.
Bringing the above two definitions into a social context; materials, ideas, values, skills and resources that are predominant in an area need to move to other areas where they are not so abundant yet needed. This in economics is described as comparative advantage.This exodus helps to increase the appreciation and value of the relocated skills, resources, ideas etc.
The question then arises: as an individual, a corporate entity, a nation, How do i maximise my value in the general market?
