Where the Digital Economy Is Moving the Fastest

Where the Digital Economy Is Moving the Fastest | Opening up education | Scoop.it
Charting the progress of different countries.
Robert Schuwer's insight:

Came across this post from several months back. Considering the Netherlands: "Most Western and Northern European countries, Australia, and Japan have been Stalling Out. The only way they can jump-start their recovery is to follow what Stand Out countries do best: redouble on innovation and continue to seek markets beyond domestic borders. Stall Out countries are also aging. Attracting talented, young immigrants can help revive innovation quickly."


Open Education advances innovation and can attract talented young immigrants.
