Predicting Decline of Institutions 2; Mainstream (corporate) Media, Big Tech etc.
The 'wave of populist nationalism' sweeping thru the West is going to wash away some of the corruption that has been perverting Western cultures. Monopolies on information have been cast aside by a world wide net of independent journalism telling truths the mainstream does not. Corporate media is now focused on 'ratings' which trump truth, and corporate managers have their own political interests to take priority over 'honesty in journalism'. This is not really anything new. Media mogul R Hearst said this. William Randolph Hearst Quotes

New Concept: Information (Market of Ideas) represents a new sort of economy, in which money is not the medium of exchange; the new medium is data.

Example Personal Information
Within the Supply-Demand paradigm, the general public is a major supply sector, and businesses participating in the economic markets are the demand sector. Internet Tech businesses are the middlemen, distributing public data to businesses who want to target specific parts of the public with advertisements. This type of direct marketing is more efficient than post mail, and especially better than the old broadcast marketing, characteristic of newspapers, signs, radio and TV.
Various parameters have effects on advertising success, one is called "traffic". The concept is that some non-zero fraction of persons who are exposed to a sales pitch (attention market), will become customers at least once. Consider only this one parameter, the greater the traffic, the greater the revenues, but also, the greater the value (cost) of the sales pitch.
Another important parameter of advertising success has to do with parsing traffic into real and virtual demand. Real demand is the quantity of prospects (potential customers) who are willing AND able to purchase. Virtual demand is the quantity of prospects who are NOT willing or able to make a purchase (but willing to consider the ad anyway). If an advertiser is able to target (send ads to) only the real prospects, he can reduce his costs (optimize traffic). The Internet is much better at that than traditional broadcast methods, and also provides an immediate means to close a deal. Again, data is both the product and the medium.
Big Tech Market Dominators are effectively Globalist governments who rule over attention markets in the data "economy".
Independent sources of deviant information (stuff the powers that be want you to never learn) face intense repression, in violation of Constitution (Amendment 1). This population of Infowar Insurgents are in effect, revolutionaries rebelling against the Mass Media Gross Dominance Program (MMGDP).
Resistance to the MMGDP is rising around the world... which do you suppose will fall first, established powers, or the Resistance? (Answer my friend, is blowin' in the data.)
