This really is a conundrum.

On the one hand, this is one of the most competitive endeavors we can undertake. The markets are highly efficient, meaning to find and then sustain a mathematical edge is really hard to do. So, if I invest my resources (time, intellect/experience and money) into developing a legitimate edge in the market, how does it benefit me to freely hand that out at the front door like Halloween candy ?

I guess it depends on your definition of an edge.

What if it means simply being better than other people at it?

Take golf - by your definition, there would be no golf teachers because why hand out the techniques if it means others will be good at it?
