520    Information is power. It drives commerce, protects nations,
       and forms the backbone of systems that range from health 
       care to high finance. Yet despite the avalanche of data 
       available in today's information age, neither institutions
       nor individuals get the information they truly need to 
       make well-informed decisions. Faulty information and sub-
       optimal decision-making create an imbalance of power that 
       is exaggerated as governments and corporations amass 
       enormous databases on each of us. Who has more power: the 
       government, in possession of uncounted terabytes of data 
       (some of it obtained by cybersnooping), or the ordinary 
       citizen, trying to get in touch with a government agency? 
       In Missed Information, David Sarokin and Jay Schulkin 
       explore information -- not information technology, but 
       information itself -- as a central part of our lives and 
       institutions. They show that providing better information 
       and better access to it improves the quality of our 
       decisions and makes for a more vibrant participatory 
       society. Sarokin and Schulkin argue that freely flowing 
       information helps systems run more efficiently and that 
       incomplete information does just the opposite. It's easier
       to comparison shop for microwave ovens than for doctors or
       hospitals because of information gaps that hinder the 
       entire health-care system. Better information about such 
       social ills as child labor and pollution can help 
       consumers support more sustainable products. The authors 
       examine the opacity of corporate annual reports, the 
       impenetrability of government secrets, and emerging 
       techniques of "information foraging." The information 
       imbalance of power can be reconfigured, they argue, with 
       greater and more meaningful transparency from government 
       and corporations.
