Abstract

The three East Asian countries are mainly in the second quarter percentile­ of National Intellectual Capital Indices for 40 Countries (NICI40). Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan ranked number 14, 21, and 17, respectively. In comparing each individual country’s overall ranking, Japan is particularly strong in renewal capital (ranked #5), yet weak in market capital (ranked #37). South Korea is comparatively better in renewal capital (ranked #19) and weak in market capital #34. Taiwan is also comparatively strong in renewal capital (ranked #11), yet this advantage did not effectively transfer to its financial capital (ranked #21).
