The information economy refers to those sectors in the economy that are concerned with the production of information goods and services, including the creation of assets and technologies for processing and distributing information. The trends that are visible today suggest that all major economies are on their way to becoming information economies. This book presents the recent research directions that address management in the information economy. The contributors include leading researchers with interests in a diverse set of topics who highlight important areas and point to some important topics for future research. The book begins with perspectives at the level of the economy as a whole and then progressively addresses industrial structure, sectors, functions (e-commerce), and business practices. The volume is organized around six sections: The Information Economy; Structure and the Organization of the Information Economy; Marketing and Ecommerce; Emerging Issues in the Information Economy; Operations in the Information Economy; and Empirical Studies of Business Practices. Introductions are provided to the main sections and the papers within each section.
