Globalization and Technology Absorption in Europe and Central Asia: The Role of Trade, FDI and Cross-Border Knowledge Flows
Innovation and cross-border absorption of knowledge are central forces behind economic convergence and sustained growth. Absorption of technology is a necessary step to promote the development of human capital and the productive base, paving the way for innovations at the global knowledge frontier. Research and development, patents, trade, and foreign direct investment are major channels of technological absorption, allowing diffusion of new ideas and manufacturing best practices among countries and firms. These channels constitute the central focus of this study. This study uses patent databases, surveys of enterprises, and case studies to investigate how specific channels of absorption molds decision making about technology. Trade and FDI flows show considerable promise as catalysts for the region to upgrade its technology and near the global technology frontier. Econometric analysis using enterprise surveys from all Europe and Central Asia countries helps to understand the conditions and policies that induce firms to incorporate external knowledge and technology into their overall growth strategies.

Between Technology and Science: Exploring an Emerging Field: Knowledge Flows and Networking on the Nano-scale: Knowledge Flows and Networking on the N
This dissertation addresses emerging developer communities in a new field of science and technology as well as methods to capture exchange processes between them. It contributes to the discussion about a new mode of knowledge production and a changing division of labour between public research, industry, and government by investigating 'nanotechnology' - an emerging area between science and technology. To explore exchange processes in this field, the study applies various methods. In particular, it uses patent citation analysis. The methodological contribution is a new interpretation of this indicator, which sees patent citations as information flows that point to reciprocal exchange processes and potential overlaps between science and technology. This is in contrast to the received interpretation, which suffers from the application of a framework that was developed in the context of scholarly citation and does not fully appreciate that a patent citation is established by the patent examiner - a party external to the inventive process. Various formats of patent citation analysis describe 'nanotechnology' as a set of instrument-driven scientific fields on their way towards science-related technologies. Even though nanotechnology patents contain more patent citations to the scientific literature than other technical fields, the science and technology systems are relatively autonomous. What links them in the case of nano-science and technology is a common interest in improving techniques of nano-scale measurement and manipulation. Another finding is that both countries and firms exhibit relatively strong path-dependencies. While nanotechnology comprises a key set of technological areas - instrumentation, electronics, and pharmaceuticals/chemicals - nano-scale activities vary considerably from country to country. Also knowledge-building activities of firms follow a strong technological path-dependency. As a result, 'social capital' seems to be confined to chiefly t

The Knowledge of Enki
Have you ever asked yourself if other civilizations exist in the Universe, and how this would then correlate with spirituality and the spiritual realm itself? Have you ever wondered or searched for a universal truth that is revealing the big picture? Did you every ask yourself what God's plan for our planet is, who the beings are that participate in it, and who the opposing forces are? Would you like to know what the Opening of the Seventh Seal-mentioned in John's Book of Revelation-really means, and how this would ultimately impact our entire world? Do you want to know what really happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370? Have you ever wondered if an original and unaltered version of the Bible exists, in whose possession it might be, and for what reason it is kept a secret? In this book you can find the answers to all these questions, answers that are being provided to us by Enki, the Spiritual Guardian of the Earth, the spiritual being who has been dubbed by the priests of our past the "Holy Spirit". Answers that flow from the spiritual world through our medium, Lucyna Lobos-Brown. This book is not religious or political, but rather spiritual. It reflects the personal journey of its writer, his experience with spirituality, and a vast collection of transcripts of public and private channeling sessions with Mrs. Lucyna Lobos-Brown. It explains the true purpose of the Great Pyramid of Giza (the Sign of Time) and the Giza Plateau, Nibiru's Passage, the Precession (the Resetting of the Cosmic Time), and how Atlantis was destroyed. It addresses God's plan for the New Earth, how the oppressive reign of the Illuminati is being brought to its end with the help of other civilizations and the spiritual world, and what life itself truly is about. This is the Knowledge of Atlantis, the Knowledge of the Anunnaki, the Knowledge of Enki.

Democracy and Knowledge: Innovation and Learning in Classical Athens
When does democracy work well, and why? Is democracy the best form of government? These questions are of supreme importance today as the United States seeks to promote its democratic values abroad. Democracy and Knowledge is the first book to look to ancient Athens to explain how and why directly democratic government by the people produces wealth, power, and security. Combining a history of Athens with contemporary theories of collective action and rational choice developed by economists and political scientists, Josiah Ober examines Athenian democracy's unique contribution to the ancient Greek city-state's remarkable success, and demonstrates the valuable lessons Athenian political practices hold for us today. He argues that the key to Athens's success lay in how the city-state managed and organized the aggregation and distribution of knowledge among its citizens. Ober explores the institutional contexts of democratic knowledge management, including the use of social networks for collecting information, publicity for building common knowledge, and open access for lowering transaction costs. He explains why a government's attempt to dam the flow of information makes democracy stumble. Democratic participation and deliberation consume state resources and social energy. Yet as Ober shows, the benefits of a well-designed democracy far outweigh its costs. Understanding how democracy can lead to prosperity and security is among the most pressing political challenges of modern times. Democracy and Knowledge reveals how ancient Greek politics can help us transcend the democratic dilemmas that confront the world today.
