    Abstract

    A thriving knowledge society must be
    cosmopolitan and open; it must reward talent and
    creativity; it must invest in people and education.
    The radical innovation and knowledge creation
    that underpins modem economic growth thrives
    in cultures that are democratic and dissenting;
    that are open to new ideas from unusual sources;
    in which authority and elites are constantly
    questioned and challenged. (Leadbeater, 1999,
    pix)
