The 21st century is widely considered a time when value will be based on knowledge and human capital. This book explores the new economy in essays by scholars and researchers from around the world who look at local, regional, national, and transnational patterns that might be successfully employed elsewhere.
The volume begins with a section devoted to regional economic development, learning networks, and systems of innovations. Trends and opportunities for science, technology, and innovation policies are examined. The book concludes with an analysis of corporate strategies for the knowledge-based economy. This is a major, much-needed resource for scholars and policymakers involved with economic development and public policy.
