KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY: The notion that economic activity is oriented on the production and consumption of knowledge (or information), which is fundamentally different from economic activity oriented on the production and consumption of manufacturing or agricultural goods. The key to the knowledge economy is the widespread use of computers, the Internet, and other information-based technology. Differences in the knowledge economy result for the public goods nature of knowledge and information (that is, use by one does not exclude use by another).
