Highlights

The modern economies of developed countries don’t rely on coal and steel, or even high-speed Internet. These are economies of human capital.

Vladimir Mau
President, Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration

When planning the future of the knowledge economy, we should rely on our past achievements.

Ehud Barak
Prime Minister of Israel (1999–2001)

Knowledge becomes economical when is it monetized and turned into a real product.

Andrei Sharonov
Dean, Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO

People who are carriers of the knowledge economy migrate very quickly around the world. Not many countries can compel such people to stay in one place for a long time.
