Also found in: Acronyms, Wikipedia.

information exchange

the transfer of information or the right to use information. Information has characteristics that make it different from other assets. In order to determine the significance and value of information, the potential buyer of information needs to have access to this information. Once the potential buyer of information has had access to it, however, he has no further incentive to pay for it. This makes information disclosure difficult in TRANSACTIONS.
