A Tale of Two Books on Knowledge by Larry Prusak

“Two rather important and quite different books have been published that should be of considerable interest to anyone who cares about the task of better understanding how knowledge works in this world.

The first, ‘The New Argonauts: Regional Advantage in a Global Economy’ by AnnaLee Saxenian is published by Harvard University Press.

This is the first real empirical study on how knowledge-flows really work.

Another stunning, though quite different knowledge book, is David Warsh’s ‘Knowledge and the Wealth Of Nations: A Story of Economic Discovery’ published by Norton.

This book is nothing less than an intellectual history of how the very idea of knowledge has re-entered economics (it was an important theme to Adam Smith but got lost in the later 20th century).”
