A economia de conhecimento

When Knowledge Was Spread Around, So Was Prosperity

The New York Times, "Economic Scene" , December 05, 2002
The "knowledge economy" did not begin (or end) with the Internet boom. But technology, institutions and attitudes that lower the cost of information and encourage people to share knowledge have not always been around.
Indeed, a new book argues, to understand why the West not only grew rich after the Industrial Revolution but also kept growing richer, we have to understand the revolution in how people organize and exchange "useful knowledge."
"The main thing I'm interested in is how societies can end up knowing more and how that changes us," said Joel Mokyr, an economic historian at Northwestern University and author of The Gifts of Athena (Princeton University Press).
