Speaking about the implications of a knowledge based strategy, Boisot states: In industrialized countries, this kind of management probably holds the key to continued prosperity and social stability. In the emerging economies it offers the prospect of by-passing the gruesome and dehumanizing experience of industrialization through which developed countries initially secured their wealth. Just how gruesome and dehumanizing can be seen in this report which highlights the degree to which the British Industrial Revolution was dependent on child slavery.
Depressingly child slavery remains an economically driven blight on any claim on the part of the human race to be civilised species – and I make no apology for the photograph, its reality.
