Knowledge economy

The knowledge economy is the use of knowledge technologies to produce economic benefits as well as job creation. The phrase was popularized by Peter Drucker as the title of Chapter 12 in his book The Age of Discontinuity, And, with a footnote in the text, Drucker attributes the phrase to economist Fritz Machlup and its origins to the idea of “scientific management” developed by Frederick Winslow Taylor.
