  1. The Knowledge Society is a must read book for anyone wanting to make a positive difference in the world today. It offers a deep and meaningful explanation of what is happening today from an economic, social and spiritual perspective. It is a brilliant historical review illustrating systemically the many factors contributing to the challenges and opportunities we face today. Most significantly, it offers hope as it outlines what can, and must, be done to create planetary wellbeing – what its author Marc Luyckx Ghisi calls genuine sustainability.

FOREWORD

In the next few decades India will probably have the largest set of young people in the world. Given this demographic advantage over the countries of the West and even China, India is optimally positioned, in the words of our Prime Minister, to "leapfrog in the race for social and economic development" by establishing a knowledge-oriented paradigm of development.

Marc Luyckx Ghisi’s book on “The Knowledge Society” is giving new global insights and new visions of this Knowledge oriented paradigm. We are, according to him, in a huge cultural change worldwide towards a new society.

This Knowledge Society is, in fact, a different paradigm, centred more on humans than on machines. It is also possibly genuinely sustainable.

So that the real race in a global world today, is for understanding and adapting to this new vision of economy, education, governance, business, intangible assets in the stock markets, and even defence and security.

For the moment nothing is decided. The winners of yesterday are not necessarily the winners of tomorrow, because the equation is completely new.

I am happy to recommend the reading of Marc Luyckx Ghisi’s book as a challenge for everyone. This book is enriching the debate inside the Knowledge commission, and opens for India interesting perspectives for the future.
