Idriss J. Aberkane - Economy of Knowledge // Génération HEC

  • "Imagine an economy whose main resource is infinite. Imagine an economy endowed with an intrinsic form of justice, an economy that facilitates and rewards sharing, an economy where the unemployed boast greater purchasing power than those in work, an economy where 1 and 1 makes 3, an economy in which everyone is born with purchasing power and where, ultimately, each individual has total control over his or her purchasing power.”

    "Nooconomics – the economics of knowledge – captures the essence of sustainable development and may allow us, in just a few years, to trivialize problems that Humanity has considered unsolvable for millennia.”

    Idriss J. Aberkane, Ph.D, teaches Geopolitics and the Knowledge Economy at Ecole Centrale Paris, he is a researcher in biomimical and cognitive engineering at Ecole Polytechnique, Université Paris- Saclay, and an affiliate scholar of the Kozmetsky Global Collaboratory, Stanford University. He is also an Ambassador of the CS-DC Unesco-Unitwin, the world’s largest Unitwin program representing more than 3 million students around the world.
