English abstract

Information is a key economic resource. Its proper conceptualization, as well as its practical integration in socioeconomic environment, poses several questions and follows general premises. These are reviewed, and once this framework is established it is illustrated with an informational analysis of the 2008 financial crisis, including remarks on changes in the financial system information environment that affected stakeholders’ information behaviour and decision making.

Spanish abstract

La información es un bien económico clave. Su adecuada conceptualización, así como su integración práctica en el entorno socioeconómico, plantean una serie de cuestiones y de principios generales que se revisarán en primer lugar. Una vez establecido este marco, se ilustrará con un análisis informacional de la crisis financiera de 2008, haciendo énfasis en los cambios acaecidos en el entorno informativo del sistema financiero, que afectaron al comportamiento informacional y a la toma de decisiones de los actores implicados.
