Everett Rogers, a professor of communication studies, popularized the theory in his book Diffusion of Innovations; the book was first published in , and is now in its fifth edition (). Rogers argues that diffusion is the process by which an innovation is communicated. The stock, fixed income, and foreign exchange markets are constantly fluctuating, as traders revise their expectations of economic activity based on economists' forecasts, market rumors, or actual economic reports. As a result, the more frequent the economic data, the more readily the market can incorporate new economic information.

The fourth relationship occurs at the international level. Here information flows, trade frictions, and alliances characterize technological development, its diffusion, global competition, and economic advance. At the human level a key area of change is the invisible contract between a manufacturing company and its customers and employees. Now in its fifth edition, Diffusion of Innovations is a classic work on the spread of new ideas. In this renowned book, Everett M. Rogers, professor and chair of the Department of Communication & Journalism at the University of New Mexico, explains how new ideas spread via . Networks, Crowds, and Markets combines different scientific perspectives in its approach to understanding networks and behavior. Drawing on ideas from economics, sociology, computing and information science, and applied mathematics, it describes the emerging field of study that is growing at the interface of all these areas, addressing. adoption. However, eventually the market becomes saturated, and the rate decreases again. This too will generate an S-shaped curve for the diffusion rate. Of course, combining this model with the previous model simply reinforces the S-shape of the curve. Models of the type just described have been the workhorses of diffusion research.
