Trade, offshoring and the knowledge economy :  Trade, offshoring and the knowledge economy Definitions of the knowledge economy:  “… one in which the generation and exploitation of knowledge has come to play the predominant part in the creation of wealth. It is not simply about pushing back the frontiers of knowledge; it is also about the most effective use and exploitation of all types of knowledge in all manner of economic activity” (DTI Competitiveness White Paper 1998).   “ economic success is increasingly based on upon the effective utilisation of intangible assets such as knowledge, skills and innovative potential as the key resource for competitive advantage. The term “knowledge economy” is used to describe this emerging economic structure” (ESRC, 2005).   Definitions of the knowledge economy BUSINESS INVESTMENT IN INTANGIBLE ASSETS ratio of investment in tangible assets (machines, buildings) to intangible assets (R&D, software, design and development, human and organisational capital): Source: HMT Economic Working Paper No.1, October 2007.:  BUSINESS INVESTMENT IN INTANGIBLE ASSETS ratio of investment in tangible assets (machines, buildings) to intangible assets (R&D, software, design and development, human and organisational capital): Source: HMT Economic Working Paper No.1, October 2007.

Offshoring and the knowledge economy - conclusions:  Offshoring and the knowledge economy - conclusions Offshoring does not constitute a major threat to the UK’s transition to a more knowledge based economy; However, as international trade in knowledge services grows as a share of GDP, likely to see more widespread trade-driven structural change across a wider range of occupations than in the past; Whether structural change is driven by technology or trade, question is whether we have sufficiently robust and effective policy responses in place to compensate losers and help individuals, sectors and communities to adjust; The UK’s position as a world-leader in trade knowledge based services rests on the promotion of liberal trade policies and our ability to exploit a world-class science, technology and educational base.
