Public policy in knowledge-based economies : foundations and frameworks
Rooney, David J., Hearn, Gregory N., Mandeville, Thomas, & Joseph, Richard (2003) Public policy in knowledge-based economies : foundations and frameworks. Edward Elgar, United Kingdom, Cheltenham.
Knowledge is a product of human social systems and, therefore, the foundations of the knowledge-based economy are social and cultural. Communication is central to knowledge creation and diffusion, and Public Policy in Knowledge-Based Economies highlights specific social and cultural conditions that can enhance the communication, use and creation of knowledge in a society." "The purpose of this book is to illustrate how these social and cultural conditions are identified and analysed through new conceptual frameworks. Such frameworks are necessary to penetrate the surface features of knowledge-based economies - science and technology - and disclose what drives such economies." "This book will provide policymakers, analysts and academics with the fundamental tools needed for the development of policy in this little understood and emerging area.
