Information in the Economy

  • Frank-Michael Bahr

Abstract

AN economic phenomenon, which for some years has been directed[1] to a broader public under the heading “information society”, is older than many admit. Some neglect consideration of classical economic theory and empiricism and perceive a movement by national economies from primary to secondary and tertiary economic sectors.[2]
