How much would I have to pay you to give up your phone (and similar devices) and swear off the internet forever? Would any amount do it? A million dollars? 10 million? Let’s just say you’d consider it for $5 million, though for many of us it would be much more than that. Considering the smartphone didn’t exist until 15 years ago, and broadband not much earlier, you might say the current you is $5 million richer than you were two decades ago, regardless of your job or your savings or your lottery success. Sure, it’s not money you can spend on food, and you can’t exactly pay the mortgage with it either, but it’s still an incredible amount of value to have gained in such a short time. It’s the type of value we tend to discount, though, when tallying our lives.
