is the branch of economics that studies the creation and distribution of
wealth related to the technological changes brought by nanotechnology. Nanoeconomics focuses on
understanding the extent of the change that will be brought upon not by a
single field of science
research but by the convergence of many. Due to the extraordinary amount of
innovation that is being generated by nanotechnology as a result of the positive
cross-linkages between highly competitive industries (i.e. Semiconductor, information technology and pharmaceutical industries), it can
be foreseen that to study nanoeconomics is to study the new paradigms in the next industrial revolution.
