Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

It is indeed about information. In the first example, the guy who knows about the pizza deal could essentially say that that it his knowledge of the deal that deserves the extra slice vis a vis the guy without the knowledge.

You could extend the example and say that the guy stands outside the pizza place asking people going in if they want a third pizza very very cheap?

They give him the money, he tells them about the offer.

THAT'S the knowledge economy...

Question.

Is the guy "productive" or is the knowledge "productive" ?
