9780893912789: Information and the Crisis Economy: (Communication and Information Science)

This volume analyzes how information and the new information technologies and processes are being used to overcome the multiple crises afflicting the U.S. and other advanced, industrial, market societies. The book focuses on development of the new technologies to create new industries to make up for older ones lost to international competition; the application of the new instrumentation throughout the industrial system to raise productivity by eliminating labor; the ultilization of advanced communication systems to police and check opposition in poor parts of the world; the privatizaion of the public sector to reduce production costs at the expense of social welfare; and unilateralism in international communications issues to derive advantage for American media, information processing, and industrial enterprise.
