Wall Street Journal: Information Overload? Relax

July 6, 2009

L. Gordon Crovitz cites Tyler Cowen in his Wall Street Journal opinion piece “Information Overload? Relax” noting that:

Tyler Cowen, an economist and popular blogger, focuses on our broader range of information options in a new book published this month, “Create Your Own Economy.” He says, “When access is easy, we tend to favor the short, the sweet, and the bitty. When access is difficult, we tend to look for large-scale productions, extravaganzas, and masterpieces.” Mr. Cowen says, “The current trend — as it has been running for decades — is that a lot of our culture is coming in shorter and smaller bits.”
