Knowledge 2010 – Intellectual Capital as Driver of Wealth

  • Peter Pawlowsky


This contribution aims at developing some questions that may help us to learn more about the IC perspective and its potential to drive a paradigmatic change and innovation in western industrialized economies. It does not intend to give a representative or scientific picture of the developments and current state of research but rather argues on the basis of subjective impressions on the developments of the Intellectual Capital research and implementation issues. It aims at giving a subjective input into the current debate on Intangibles, Human Capital, Intellectual Capital and Knowledge and argues that an integration of IC concepts into political strategies, regional development and corporate policies is vital for the development and innovation in knowledge economies.
