An economy (Greek οίκος-household and νέμoμαι - manage) or economic system consists of the production, distribution or trade, and consumption of limited goods and services by different agents in a given geographical location. The economic agents can be individuals, businesses, organizations, or governments.

Innovation economics is a growing economic theory that emphasizes entrepreneurship and innovation.

Information economy is an economy with an increased emphasis on informational activities and information industry. Wikipedia
The knowledge economy is the use of knowledge (savoir, savoir-faire, savoir-etre) to generate tangible and intangible values. Technology and in particular knowledge technology help to transform a part of human knowledge to machines. This knowledge can be used by decision support systems in various fields and generate economic values. Knowledge economy is also possible without technology. Wikipedia

Finance is a field that deals with the allocation of assets and liabilities over time under conditions of certainty and uncertainty. Finance also applies and uses the theories of economics at some level. Finance can also be defined as the science of money management.

An information society is a society where the creation, distribution, use, integration and manipulation of information is a significant economic, political, and cultural activity. The aim of the information society is to gain competitive advantage internationally, through using information technology (IT) in a creative and productive way. The knowledge economy is its economic counterpart, whereby wealth is created through the economic exploitation of understanding. People who have the means to partake in this form of society are sometimes called digital citizens. This is one of many dozen labels that have been identified to suggest that humans are entering a new phase of society. Wikipedia
Network society is the expression coined in 1981 related to the social, political, economic and cultural changes caused by the spread of networked, digital information and communications technologies. The intellectual origins of the idea can be traced back to the work of early social theorists such as Georg Simmel who analyzed the effect of modernization and industrial capitalism on complex patterns of affiliation, organization, production and experience.

The Information Age (also known as the Computer Age, Digital Age, or New Media Age) is a period in human history characterized by the shift from traditional industry that the industrial revolution brought through industrialization, to an economy based on information computerization. The onset of the Information Age is associated with the Digital Revolution, just as the Industrial Revolution marked the onset of the Industrial Age. Wikipedia
Information space is the set of concepts and relations among them held by an information system; it describes the range of possible values or meanings an entity can have under the given rules and circumstances. Another definition (idealistic) is that the information space are the total results of the semantic activity of the humanity, "the world of names and titles", conjugated to the ontological world. Being a primary concept, the information space cannot be precisely defined and is set as a dialectical opposition to the material, physical, object space. Wikipedia
The noosphere (/ˈnoʊ.əsfɪər/; sometimes noösphere) is the sphere of human thought. Wikipedia Noosphere (from the Greek. νόος - mind and σφαῖρα - ball) - the sphere of the mind; the interaction between society and nature, in which a reasonable human activity becomes the determining factor in the development.
Close to post-industrial theory are the concepts of information society, post-economic society, postmodern, "the third wave", "the company's fourth", "scientific information stage of the principle of production." Some futurists believe that post-industrialism - it's only the beginning of the transition to a "post-human" phase of development of our civilization. Wikipedia
"Cyberspace consists of interactions and relationships, thinks and builds itself like a standing wave in the web of our communications. Our world is simultaneously everywhere and nowhere, but not where our bodies."
