Methods and National Intellectual Capital Ranking of 40 Countries



As mentioned in the previous two chapters, the intellectual capital of a nation requires a comprehensive system of variables to help uncover and manage that nation’s invisible wealth; yet, measurement models of past studies have constraints for an on-going cross-country national intellectual capital (IC) comparison of a relatively large scale. This book proposes a moderate set of national intellectual capital indicators that is validated and can be easily replicated for follow-up trend analysis.
