Chapter

Abstract

The four relatively large Western European countries are among the ­second quarter percentile (11–20th) of national intellectual capital indices for 40 countries (NICI40). France, Germany, Ireland, and the United Kingdom ranked number 20, 15, 13, and 19, respectively. In taking into account each individual country’s overall ranking, both France and Germany have a relatively better score in renewal capital (ranked #10 and ranked #6); Ireland has a very good score in market capital (ranked #2), while France is particularly weak in market capital (ranked #35).
