Hungry for Local Knowledge

Posted By Guy Pfeffermann, Wednesday, April 07, 2010
Updated: Monday, January 28, 2013

Guy PfeffermannPaul Romer provides a useful theoretical underpinning to GBSN's mission which does precisely what he is talking about - help higher education institutions in developing countries - in this instance management schools - tap more (and more relevant) bits of the stock of world knowledge. The only element I would add is that we found that the reverse flow is also significant. Researchers in advanced countries are hungry for local knowledge (e.g., business teaching cases of LDC enterprises), and this is one of the incentives for advanced country institutions to share knowledge.

"Flows of ideas are the part of globalization that matters for poverty re-education and catch-up growth."


Read Paul Romer's "Which Parts Of Globalization Matter For Catch-Up Growth?"
