In classical economics, very often the costs of communications and media services are just treated as a consumable expense. This approach does not realize the social and business roles of these services, as opposed to a consumption, to achieve survival or production for households and enterprises. As a result, costs of these services are included either in the cost of living index via a nominal percentage and tariff, or as a nominal share of the general and administration expenses of corporations. There has been little consideration by scholars of the evolution and forces driving changes in these nominal shares.
