Data, Tokens, Services and Sustainability

We have all heard the terms “data is the new oil” or “our economies will be fueled by data” but to be honest I never really understood what people meant by saying this. I mean it is obvious that data is very important to things around here, but at the end of the day economies are made up of things and I can’t see how we replace all those things with data and all just eat, sleep and drive data. But actually to make sense of the importance of data you have to think about economies in a totally different way and it just came to me recently the connection between these things; data, services, token economies, and the sustainability thing.
