Information, information theory: A character or a character combination contains information when it is clear to the recipient that this character or the character combination appears instead of another possible character or a possible character combination. The supply of possible characters determines to a part the probability of the occurrence of a character from this supply. In addition, the expected probability of the appearance of a character can be increased by already experienced experiences of regularities. The amount of information transmitted by a character depends on the improbability of the occurrence of the character.

Information/Strategies/Hirschman: Context: Hirschman examines the strategies of migration and conflicts within markets (consumption), political parties and organizations.
Information: conflict transports more information than ((s) mute) migration (1). The constellation changes again when interests are heterogeneous. This can lead to a minority, who is practiced in exercising conflict, pushing an organization in a direction the minority wishes, while the "silent majority" only have the option of emigration (2). See Organizations/Hirschman, Political Parties/Hirschman, Competition/Hirschman.
