Engaging to Construct Knowledge Markets
Malls and markets are part and parcel of our daily life. Imagine life without designated markets. Where would we go to purchase a quart of milk or a pint of ale? Additionally, consider life without the regulations that govern markets. How do we verify that the can of soup we purchase actually contains the stated ingredients? How do we know that the sign ‘Closeout Sale’ signifies a bargain? While most of us take the existence of markets and their regulators for granted, life would be very difficult without them.
