Where Social Media, Economics and Linked Data come together

I am very interested in understanding how we can mitigate the damage as the world goes through the current deflationary cycle. Also in understanding socio-economic theories which say people are the drivers of economics and the that fiscal economic equations do not work well in extreme conditions. Is economics are social how does social media play a role. Finally does the promise of Linked data and a Semantic web hold the key to the next economic boom where we can use transparency methods to prevent the problems which led to the crash of the last cycle?
