We describe several potential economic applications for quantum information technology. These applications rely on the information aspects of quantum computing rather than computational advantages. Thus these economic applications are viable with just a few qubits, so could be useful early benefits of the technology. This contrasts with applications, such as factoring, that exploit the computational advantages of quantum computing. We illustrate this possibility in the context of auctions.
