Definition of human capital measures

Measuring the knowledge economy  January 22, 2013 – 11:00 pm
CIPD (2006), Human Capital The problem noted in the previous post on how to measure productivity in the internet age is just one example of the problems with measuring most aspects of the economy in the, so-called, knowledge economy. This is a problem that I have written a little on. There is a section on this problem, called "Mr Bean(counter) measures the economy", in Oxley, Walker, Thorns and Wang (2008). It is written, Much time and effort is expended by many national and international organisations in an attempt to measure the economy or economies of the world. While the measuring of the “standard” economy is funny enough, when we move to the measurement of the “knowledge economy” measurement goes from the mildly humorous to the outright hilarious. Most attempts to measure, or even define, the information or knowledge economy border on the farcical: the movie version should be called, "Mr Bean(counter) Measures the Economy". There are substantial challenges to be overcome in any attempt to measure the knowledge society\economy. These are at both the theoretical and the method level. A more consistent set of definitions are required as are more robust measures that are derived from theory rather than from what is currently or conveniently available.

Good points, thanks

I was rolling your reply around in my mind overnight and came up with these thoughts for you to consider:
1. Is petroleum a product of the decay and geologic metamorphosis of vegetation from an earlier time (making it a substance of certifiably organic origins?), or is it one of those compounds such as seawater that formed as part of the formation of the planet? Some people are of the opin...the past 100 years from a petroleum-based economy? And, if so, by whom? How many more examples of such conflicting ideology are there if I dig a little deeper?
I also understand that those who have profited from fossil fuels are well-entrenched in the mechanics of our government, and just as any species concerned about its future, they will do many things to preserve their own interests...

The Psychological Value of Gun Ownership

Monday's Supreme Court decision on guns allows citizens to challenge city and state regulations that curtail their Second Amendment right to bear arms. This is an important ruling because it shores up the Constitution at a time when the Obama administration is testing it in more than one way. But it is also important psychologically for millions of Americans
The right to bear arms is a cri...r way of life and our safety from oppression comes without the tremendous responsibilities and moral complexities of wielding force. The same people who passively pay taxes that put tanks on the streets and fighter jets in the skies over our enemies' nations can cringe at the idea of owning guns themselves — projecting their survival instincts onto an all-powerful father figure (the state)

Causes people to suffer? Because we have an uncaring society? Because some are benefitted and others are not- particularly not those who have little say in how things operate?
Why are sufferers willing to accept the psychiatric model? Because they want so much to believe in the goodwill of the society that has screwed them in the first place? Psychiatry certainly numbs the pain, but the "...re.
There should also be people on the "other side" (people who personally benefit from the way the society is set up) who can recognize the need for change and figure out ways of supporting oppressed persons instead of BLAMING them.
It is possible that "psychiatric patients", if they can ditch society's definition of them, could become the visionaries to lead us to a better future!
