9780444828866: Information and Organization: A Tribute to the Work of Don Lamerton

Don Lamberton was one of the first scholars to recognise the need for information to be taken seriously, he has spent much of his career persuading others. Focusing on his contribution, this volume explores the struggle for recognition of a way of thinking which is fundamental to our understanding of the social and economic role of information. Each of the thirty authors, prominent in information economics and related fields have written a contribution especially for this volume. Vital issues, central to Lamberton's concerns and often ignored in euphoric approaches to information - the plight of the information poor, the poverty of information policy, the future of universal service, quality of employment, organisational and market failure to effect information transactions, the role of information in economic development, problems of codifying, classifying and managing information, the limitations of information systems - are emphasised throughout. The whole encapsulates the vast progress which has been made, not just in academic thinking about information, but in the part this thinking now plays in corporate strategy and government policy. The volume is both an affectionate account of Don Lamberton's contribution to the understanding of information, and also the most comprehensive and authoritative of collections on the social and economic significance of information.

Review:

Twenty-eight papers, honoring Don M. Lamberton of the Research School of Social Sciences at Australian National University, address the economics of information and organization. Papers focus on the work of Don Lamberton; information, the economy and society; knowledge and innovation; organizations and markets; telecommunications policy and economic development; and internationalization and information.
Journal of Economic Literature
The most striking feature of this volume is indeed the diversity of subject domain that the themes of information problems in economics encompass. ...This is a very interesting and high quality book, each chapter self-contained by reference and thoroughly indexed.
