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,
