I'm researching the size of the hardware vs software economy. What is the
latest on the size of the hardware economy (materials, housing, industry,
ag etc) compared to the information economy (software, information
services, education, etc)?

I heard somewhere that the hardware economy is 80% of the economy. Can
anyone point me to sources?
