Information’s worth

What’s information worth?  How about the cost of remodeling your bathroom?

“Ex-Barclays Banker Charged With Passing Inside Information to Plumber,” The Wall Street Journal, June 1, 2016 C1.   A former Barclays’ employee was arrested for disclosing confidential deal information to his friend and plumber, in return for, among other things, a free bathroom remodel.  Plumber allegedly got about $76,000 in illegal profits.

There’s a metric. The remodel was not so much free as “included.”

Is any information free?
