Trade Policy needs to Consider Private and Public Intangible Capital

Foreign trade driven by offshoring has caused a large loss in manufacturing jobs. A change in trade policy can return many manufacturing jobs to the USA and stop many additional losses.The right legal argument recognizes that trade policy and economics don’t account for THE THEFT OF PUBLIC INTANGIBLE CAPITAL (PIC) IN OFFSHORING where the PIC was financed with public investments. Failed trade policy is based on a paradigm of comparative advantage but doesn’t penalize offshoring that is…See More

Washington Think Tank has an obsolete view of innovation that largely ignores intangible capital

The Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF) is one of the best think tanks in Washington because they study how innovation drives economic growth. However, the ITIF largely ignores how intangible capital drives innovation and economic growth. In their recent report,Contributors and Detractors:Ranking Countries’ Impact on Global Innovation,…See More

Integrated thinking, three frameworks and adding a fourth framework for innovation

The model of integrated thinking that combines three frameworks – Integrated Reporting, Sustainability, and Intangible Capital is excellent, but the framework for innovation is missing. In the framework for innovation there is a debate over a traditional vs. a new framework. In the traditional framework, investment in R&D is considered the primary driver of value creation. But the debate is also about process. In the traditional framework, the process is linear with stage gates in a…See More

William Miller commented on Mary Adams's blog post From IC to IR: Why I’m expanding my focus
"Mary, Good move - expanding scope to include IR. Next move - show how the even greater expanded scope of innovation connects to your framework containing IR and IC because the input/output model in IR is driven by a process for innovation that…"

William Miller commented on Mary Adams's blog post Why do you like IC?
"Mary, The biggest problem with IC is a chaotic situation with multiple definitions that creates confusion hampering commercial applications and consulting services. In addition, the current definitions ignore (1) IC produced by public…"

Mary Adams commented on William Miller's blog post Major reports misunderstand intangible capital and the linkage to innovation and economic growth
"Thanks Bill for taking on this subject. It's unfortunate that the authors don't see the value in the CHS approach. This system has been so important because they are gathering all the available economic data about intangibles in one place.…"

Major reports misunderstand intangible capital and the linkage to innovation and economic growth

Intangible Capital (IC) is misunderstood by the federal government, universities, economists, think tanks in Washington, and other organizations such as The Conference Board. Here’s a new report by the Information Technology  and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) entitled “The Limits of the Knowledge-Based Capital (KBC) Framework” that is unaware of intangible capital frameworks such as described by SmarterCompanies .  …See More

William Miller commented on Kenan Jarboe's blog post A look at the OECD report on Knowledge-Based Capital - new Athena Alliance paper
"The research and publication activity on intangible capital (IC) and innovation (IN) have parallel paths that don’t seem to be connected such as for IC: the OECD reports and Integrated Reporting and for IN: the recent “book”…"

William Miller commented on Mary Adams's blog post A useful convergence? Intangible Capital, Sustainability and the IIRC
"Mary, That's a good simplification, but - Sustainability is one of the goals/attributes of value creation/innovation - there are others more important (recognized in 4G) such as health/safety/comfort, productivity, lifecycle cost reduction,…"
