Abstract

As it happened at the time with the development of the press, "information" is available today to an increasing number of users and this has been amplified in the last thirty years by the existence of the Internet that represents the infrastructure of Information Society, a new economic model that is increasingly asserting itself in Europe and the world. In light of this, we can ask ourselves how the concept of "information" has evolved and whether the "resource" it represents, although widely spread among the population, is equally distributed among the same. Furthermore, what is the ease of access to information and what are the tools and guarantees that the public authorities put in place to facilitate information flows among the public? Moreover, can the information resource become an instrument of power in the hands of a few? This article evaluates the role of the information, supporting the structure of this new type of society, within the development of the new economy, which is the natural consequence of the process of economic globalization.
