Networks for Prosperity

Is the name of a new UN report to which I have contributed. The report looks at the importance of knowledge networks in the context of economic development, trade, innovation and growth. The first launch of the report happened a few weeks ago at the UN headquarters in Vienna. A second launch is planned in NYC early 2013 and I look forward to attending. My contribution to the report considers the ways human capital is enriched by talent mobility, professional interactions, information flow, and motivational incentives, and examines how intellectual property and competition policy can support (and conversely hinder) these effects (also see here and here). I plan to post more about the report's implications at the NYC launch.
