Why is facebook, which produces nothing, worth

So much money?
The numbers are staggering. By way of comparison, when Google went public in 2004, it was valued at just $23 billion and raised $1.9 billion from investors.
Where does such a stupefyingly large valuation come from? Not the users, obviously. We don't pay a dime to maintain our profiles. And while Facebook is admirably "sticky," in the parlance of online advertisers, tha...gence software. But the software that does the data mining is only a tool—what really matters is how much data you have. And Facebook has a lot.

We need domestic and international economic vision that everyone can understand and refine and make their own. We need it to generate hope, to provide inspiration, to reveal what is possible and valuable, and to orient and also democratize our strategies so that they might take us where we desire rather than in circles or even toward something worse than what we now endure.

Facebook

By way of comparison, when Google went public in 2004, it was valued at just $23 billion and raised $1.9 billion from investors.
