Ebook Description

The world stands at the crossroads of development of the network society. Yet current social systems stall the dynamics of creativity. Is government ready to accept democracy of communication? Are economics players aware of the need to redefine property rights? Jorge Sampaio, President of the Portugese Republic, invited prominent researchers and politicians from the U.S., EU and South America to examine the opportunities and challenges of the network society--and to offer recommendations for policy.
