About this Site

Www.kwonbook.com was established to permit fuller discussion of the issues raised by Knowledge and the Wealth of Nations: a Story of Economic Discovery without diluting the coverage at www.economicprincipals.com.

Economic Principals began life as a newspaper column. It has evolved into a reader-supported online weekly about developments in technical economics. KWON, on the other hand, is a book about one particular set of developments — the discovery in the 1980s and 1990s of of a distinctive economics of knowledge.

KWONbook will post items on topics related to the book, probably weekly. It is a publishing venture, much like Economics Principals. The subsidiary blog, On The Economics of Knowledge, is an experiment, designed to see whether it is possible to dip a toe in the blogpool without being swept head-first into the vortex. Blogs are a powerful new medium, but I remain an economic journalist.
