No doubt. How are you going to test these views, when the economy is
changing rapidly? Certainly economists should be *trying* to test business
theorist's ideas, but it's not going to be easy.

Here's one business theorists who I think highly of. I like all I've read
by him (which is not everything he's written), but I'll especially
recommend his new book:

Geoffrey Moore, Living on the Fault Line: Managing for Shareholder Value in
the Age of the Internet.

There's also a large volume of research on better ways of valuing
intangible assets, such as the work of Bernard Lev at N.Y. University. You
can find links to much of this material by checking under the New Economy
