A Beautiful Question - Frank Wilczek

                                         Many kinds of rewards are given to people for tangible services rendered.
                                         These rewards take the form of salaries, profits, social status, and so forth.
                                         But the accumulated wealth of basic science and art often derives from efforts
                                         whose ultimate value isn't immediately obvious. Even in cases where some break-
                                         through is clearly important, it may be years before the work yields any economic
                                         in the usual sense. People who work toward increasing this special kind of wealth
                                         are devoting their careers to long-term investment in the improvement of life for
                                         humanity as a whole.
