Economic Theories on Knowledge - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 415
Knowledge/Economic Theories:
Knowledge of the first kind: knowledge of functional and cause-effect relationships.
Second type of knowledge: is subject to market-endogenous processes of individual knowledge generation.
For example, environmental policy: The state actors have only limited knowledge of environmental policy management, although it is largely unknown on the part of the state how the management addressees (companies, private households) react to environmental policy measures in view of the subjective adjustment possibilities available to them.
For this reason, the state's knowledge of environmental policy must always be renewed over time if missteering is to be avoided. In addition, the state must examine on a case-by-case basis to what extent cooperation with environmental policy stakeholders is an appropriate means of providing the state with information that cannot otherwise be obtained.
