Overview

All Germans but for a Scot, economists concentrate on basic questions of the institutional conditions for the interactive use of knowledge in the development of economies. Knowledge-sharing institutions, knowledge and cognition, the knowledge issue in economics, and the regulations for digital technology are the general themes within which they discuss such topics as new institutional economics and knowledge sharing, processes of knowledge sharing from cognitive psychology to economics, a view from the history of economic thought, and German digitalization and regulation. The 10 papers are from two seminars at the Institute for Work and Technology, Germany, in April and December 2001. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
