I think the knowledge-driven economy is an unfortunate phrase because I tell you, making cars or making forklift trucks, or other high positioned equipment, needs, in my experience, more knowledge and more skills than running service sector companies and e-commerce dot com companies. Knowledge economy talk is quite an insult to my plumber and my car mechanic and the farmers and people who do other jobs, on building sites and the like. As if what they do does not require knowledge.
