The Future Information Structure in Economics
AbstractThis paper is a first look at how the information infrastructure for economists will change with the arrivial of the Internet. While paper has long been used for the the flow of information in the profession, computer networks are starting to supplement it, and in the not-to- distant future, will replace paper. We examine the myriad ways in which a networked world will benefit the profession. The most exciting is the easy access to the material that lies at the heart of our profession: journals, working papers, data, and teaching.
