Economics-related ICT research has moved from the fringes of the discipline
to penetrate all of its branches. It is, therefore, not a separate economics
sub-discipline. It is also unlikely to become part of an ‘ICT or Internet
Research’ proto-discipline. Instead, it should be seen as only one part
of a bigger agenda toward a proper ‘information and knowledge economics’
and possibly a future proto-discipline of a ‘unified theory of informationof
information and knowledge’ or a meta-discipline of information sciences.
