Revolutionary account of the transformative potential of the knowledge economy A revolutionary practice of production--the knowledge economy--has emerged in our time. It appears in every sector, not just in high-tech industry, but so far only as a series of insular vanguards that exclude the vast majority of workers and businesses. In this book Roberto Mangabeira Unger explores the hidden workings and the transformative potential of the knowledge economy. He describes the radical changes in economic and political institutions, and in ways of thinking, that could bring knowledge-intensive production to the whole economy--and inaugurate a period of accelerated and socially inclusive economic growth.
