Rufus Pollock's economic work mentioned on p.3  and p.5 of the
Conservative's Technology Manifesto:



"In addition, our plans to open up government data and spending
information will not only help us to cut wasteful spending, but
according to new research by Dr Rufus Pollock of Cambridge
University, the lead author of the HM Treasury report on the
economic value of open data, it will also create an estimated £6
billion in additional value for the UK. This boost to British jobs will
come from the synergies and positive spillover benefits that result
from businesses and social entrepreneurs building new applications
and services using previously locked-up government data."

p. 5
