The Economics of Communication and Information (International Library of Critical Writings in Economics)

Lamberton, Donald M.

As economic activity has become more information-intensive and ideas about the information society have been canvassed widely, information technology has overshadowed thinking about the role of communication and information. In the advanced economies investment in information-handling equipment has grown rapidly in importance and almost throughout the world telecommunications facilities are advocated as the leading edge of development. This collection, which contains 32 articles dating from 1965 to 1991, charts the responses of the economics discipline to these changes, initially slowly but with gathering pace, as communication and information have moved from the footnotes to centre stage.
