The knowledge economy/society: the latest example of "Measurement without theory"?Article

Authors: Les Oxley 1; Paul Walker 1; David Thorns 1; Hong Wang 1

The world has embraced a set of concepts (knowledge driven growth) which are seen as the 'core of future growth and wellbeing' without any commonly agreed notion of what they are, how they might be measured, and crucially therefore, how they actually do (or might) affect economic growth and social wellbeing. The theory of how the mechanism works lacks important detail.
