All strategy, like all economics, is based on information. The more accurate your information, the better the various techniques of strategy work, but strategy assumes that everyone's information is incomplete. The biggest change affecting strategy in the recent years is the new access to information afforded by the Internet. For most of my life, I had to depend on mainstream media reporting about conditions in the larger environment. In the last several years, we all have begun discovering how flawed and incomplete the view provided by MSM is.
