    A measurement value for knowledge is introduced on the basis of mathematics. This measurement value expands the potential for economic analysis, reveals new interconnections, and defines familiar economic characteristics in mathematical terms. As an example, a mathematical formula for the competence of a company is derived here in an illustrative fashion and the relation-ships between growth in turnover, stability and effectivity are shown. In conclusion a number of interpretative comments are made on the significance of the approach for future economic theory.
