Give unlimited resources to a Victorian and he will burn coal to power a steam engine.
Give the same to a 20th century person and they will burn gas to make electricity.
In the 21st century we might make solar panels so that we don’t need to cut down the forests or burn fossil fuels.
It’s not what you have, it’s what you know that determines what you can do. A resource is an idea, not a physical object. Wealth is knowledge, not money or gold.
And if wealth is knowledge, then it can be taught.
