Everything has its value. Words that are common in the langue of economists, ecologists so as philosophers, the only difference is the meaning.

When I do speak about INDUSTRY 5.0 I say that as INDUSTRIAL EVOLUTION it differentiates from INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION because it cannot be bought, but it does not mean that it has no value, it is just so that nobody is rich enough to be able to buy INDUSTRY 5.0.

After INDUSTRY 5.0 was on the program of the 7th WORLD INVESTMENT FORUM I was asked many times about the value of INDUSTRY 5.0 and I realized that it was set in 2019 already. It is

475. USD

This is the price that the buyer has to pay.

The number indicates the financial volume of globally generated savings that implementation of INDUSTRY 5.0 PRINCIPLES in the meaning of systematic waste prevention, deliver to those who will implement them in their own business or corporate or national environment.

In fact, it is not a final number, because every single implementation delivers the new bigger scope of environment and processes into which systematic waste prevention can be applied.

Just yesterday the world was informed that the NET WORTH of the richest person in the world is bigger than the second and third man´s fortune together. USD is ELON MUSK's worth but even so, he is not able to afford to pay the value of INDUSTRY 5.0, which must be depressing for him as a man who makes his fortune the only target of his life same as many on the FORTUNE list.

If we speak about the value I was sure to publish in the WASTELESS WORLD STORY chapters containing this word and after checking I realized that this article is the TENTH in a row and it is interesting to see how the value is being understood during the development of the FIRST INDUSTRIAL EVOLUTION EVER LED BA MAN (HUMAN) which INDUSTRY 5.0 represents. To save your time let me list the previous nine articles

  1. 2014–04–07 TIME IS BIGGEST VALUE
  2. 2014–08–27 THE VALUE OF ABSENCE
  3. 2014–09–01 US DEBT VALUE WORTH IDEA
  6. 2020–03–25 THE VALUE OF TIME
  7. 2020–04–24 THE VALUE OF MY TIME
  9. 2020–11–13 THE VALUE OF CHANGE

It is very interesting to look back in time and to listen or read what was delivered. Just to be accurate it is necessary to say that the first four articles has been published before INDUSTRY 5.0 was officially delivered and the INDUSTRIAL EVOLUTION started on 2015–12–01

During the implementation of the systematic waste prevention principles, I have met many wise people including INDUSTRY 5.0 AMBASSADORS who trust me and joined me on the construction site of WASTELESS WORLD. Some did not become ambassadors, but partners. With two of them DOUG BERGER and DOUG McCLAIN we meet every Wednesday to talk, touching on many similar topics, looking at many angles of one single stone, answering questions that have been raised for the first time.

Our last discussion (2021–10–20) ends up with a number 17 and on the way home I realized where have I see the number before.

It is on my own blackboard which carries information about the size of the INDUSTRY 5.0 AMBASSADORS NETWORK. Information is written by my own hand in order to indicate the process of growth.

Above is a sign inside which is the number SEVENTEEN written in. The form, which seems to be unlogical was described in a separate article named PULLING THE ROPE which become soon after its publishing one of the most quoted ones in early 2021.

In our discussion which came months after the sign “1>17” was written on the paper and placed on the blackboard, the number SEVENTEEN was repeated several times and ended the discussion leaving all participants with rich food for our brains till our next meeting.

I will not go into the details, but I know that soon the number “17” will become for many very different meanings and I am truly looking forward to seeing the change which the wake-up call we prepare, delivers

Have a nice time free of waste and wasting in all its forms and stay safe
