Zusammenfassung

This article explores the potential of a consumption model and consumption thinking for conceptualizing the epistemics of financial information. The argument rests on three characteristics of information knowledge. The first pertains to the nature and construction of reality to which information knowledge refers. That reality, this article argues, is not similar to the one most natural sciences assume: it is fluid and ever changing and does not conform to the stable mechanisms and patterns that we perceive to be present in nature. The second characteristic is that knowledge strategies in this area of information tend not to correspond to the representational procedures we are familiar with in natural science. The article illustrates how representation becomes emptied out and proxy measurements and other strategies take its place. The third characteristic of financial information processes is that they creatively destroy knowledge — by absorbing knowledge into other objects, revising it without end, or disseminating it until it loses value. This, too, points to epistemic consumption.
