Knowledge based economy == Knowledge less society.
I admit, I'm stupid.
It took me so many years to understand what the "Knowledge based economy" really means and why the hell in almost every manual there is an information that I shouldn't eat the product while there is almost nothing about what the hell it is.
Well... recently I'm even unable to read those manuals - when I was young lad we all had to learn to read letters and make them into words. Using images was for dummies. Nowadays I'm often stuck - there are only images, no letters at all!
When I was born and grew we still lived in a "product based economy". I was taught to believe, that what the business do is to manufacture things. Gaining goods was considered a recommended life philosophy by many of people those days.
The material stuff was what mattered. More conscious people were asking themselves whether it's better "to have" or "to be".
The one who manufactured more, who manufactured better products
