Knowledge Economy

I was inspired last year when I read about the concept of the Knowledge Worker.  Here is a little bit of the concept from Wikipedia:

  • The first wave was the Agricultural Age with wealth defined as ownership of land.

  • In the second wave, the Industrial Age, wealth was based on ownership of Capital, i.e. factories.

  • In the Knowledge Age, wealth is based upon the ownership of knowledge and the ability to use that knowledge to create or improve goods and services.   In the Knowledge Age, 2% of the working population will work on the land, 10% will work in Industry and the rest will be Knowledge Workers.

I truly love to learn and enjoy sharing knowledge. 

I hope to use this blog as a demonstration of the Law Of Duplication from John Maxwell’s The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.  I plan to capture the knowledge I have learned and make it available for my readers for their development. 

Together we can all increase our knowledge!
