A study of the ‘control theory’ has been widely cited by economists as a key piece of information about the relationship between inequality and productivity.
The idea that inequality is driven by inequality of access to information and knowledge and that the latter can be managed by providing the better information and the more knowledge workers have, is a central claim of the study.
In particular, the authors claim that there is a ‘correlation between the increase in access to and information and its impact on productivity’, and that this correlation is a direct consequence of a reduction in the ability of those with access to the information and information-processing resources.
However, this claim has been challenged by other economists.
One criticism is that it ignores the fact that in a highly information-driven economy, people tend to be more productive when their information is available to them.
This means that the effect of inequality on productivity may not be due to the increased access to knowledge and information that it is claimed to be, but rather, the increased information access.
In the same way that a decline in access is not due to a decrease in the knowledge and ability of the workforce, a decrease of information access is unlikely to be due entirely to a decline of the ability to access information.
To test the effect on productivity of increased information availability, the researchers analysed the effect that the reduction in information access had on the productivity of a group of workers in a US company.
They found that workers with access and knowledge of a new technology had a 2.5% higher productivity than those with no access or knowledge.
Furthermore, there was a 5.4% increase in the productivity rate of those workers who had access and/or knowledge of the new technology.
However the study did not measure the actual increase in productivity, or measure the change in productivity over time.
The authors claim their results suggest that increased access and information may reduce the productivity effect of increased inequality.
But this claim is not supported by other research.
In fact, a large literature has documented the opposite effect of increasing access to a new, widely-available resource.
It has been found that access to new technologies increases productivity.
For example, researchers from the Centre for Economic Performance at the University of Sussex in the UK have found that the productivity impact of technological innovation in the digital economy is increased by an average of 5.6% per year.
This productivity boost was attributed to increased use of the technology, increased knowledge and expertise, and a reduction of the number of workers needed to implement the new technologies.
There are also several studies of the impact of information availability on the production of new technology, and they show a similar pattern.
In a study of computer software, researchers at the Technical University of Munich found that a 10% increase of the availability of the software was associated with a 3.8% increase, on average, in the price of the product.
This finding is consistent with the idea that increased information can increase productivity, and that reducing access to it may reduce productivity.
Similarly, in a study by economist Richard Thaler, the research team found that an increase in information availability leads to an increase of innovation in new products.
However this effect is not as significant as for the new software, because the researchers found that this effect does not extend to the new product, but only to the price increase of that product.
So, the study does not demonstrate a causal relationship between increased access or information availability and increased productivity, but it does suggest that it may be more important than previously thought.
What this means for policy and policy-makers is that while a reduction on information availability is unlikely, increasing access and education may be beneficial.
The researchers argue that this could lead to an improvement in the overall quality of society, which is desirable in a competitive economy.
However their analysis does not go far enough to prove the positive impact of increased access.
They argue that, even with increased access, there are significant barriers to productivity.
One of these barriers is the lack of an effective labour market, which means that workers are not given the skills and knowledge they need to achieve the same productivity gains that they do in a fully competitive market.
Another barrier is the information processing time required to create a new product.
If we look at the impact on the cost of the average product, which was $100 in 2015, this is a large amount of money.
But the researchers argue this does not affect the productivity increase, as information is only one part of the cost.
The third barrier is that the increase of access is likely to increase the cost for some people.
This is because the information that people need is different to that that the average worker needs.
The increased costs of information processing and the information barriers associated with it mean that some people will be disadvantaged in terms of their ability to earn a living, or to find jobs that pay them a living wage.
As an example, the Economist recently reported that the US unemployment rate in the first quarter of 2018
