Understanding the Dynamics of a Knowledge Economy

Edited by Wilfred Dolfsma () and Luc Soete

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: The ‘knowledge economy’ is a concept commonly deemed too ambiguous and elusive to hold any significance in current economic debate. This valuable book seeks to refute that myth. Presenting an important collection of views, from a number of leading scholars, this innovative volume visibly demonstrates that knowledge and information are a prime resource in driving the dynamics of an economy.
