Summary

This book probes the surface of contemporary economic and social change and reveals how the shift to a knowledge-based economy is redefining firms, empowering individuals, and reshaping the links between learning and work. Using economic, management and knowledge-based theories, it describes the emergence of a new breed of capitalist, one dependent on knowledge rather than physical resources.
