Human Capital, Knowledge and Innovations

Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
Founded on Heinrich von Storch's theory of "inner goods", the paper develops the concept of a person's or an economy's stock of human capital, which comprises the competences of health, of skills, of gaining insight, of adaequate social, cultural and political behaviour. Knowledge in a wide definition is the total of all these competences. Knowledge in a narrow definition is the competence of gaining insight; its application includes the activity of making an invention. A Schumpeterian entrepreneur uses an invention to develop and to introduce a new profitable product. The new knowledge contained in the product is, in a process of dynamic competition, first used as a private good, then it is regularly exposed by "open knowledge disclosure" to a club or network of users, and finally, it becomes available to everybody as a public good.
