Do we really understand the world we've created? Trading of information is fundamentally different to producing and trading goods or even services.
We have gone from buying phones to data plans, from razor blades to shaving services and increasingly from groceries to meals delivered on demand – all of which are part of the information economy. Do we really understand the world we've created? Despite the language we use, the production and trading of information is fundamentally different to producing and trading goods or even services. Taking another look is timely as we seek to benefit from the digital muscles developed during the pandemic to mature our still nascent information and digital economy for the benefit of all.
