The new or not so new economy a real world perspective l.jpg

The new (or not so new) economy: (2001)- a real world perspective

Ron Botham

Training & Employment Research Unit


What we can learn from soviet cuisine l.jpg
What we can learn from Soviet cuisine (2001)

  • Russian national dish: PIRMINI

  • Kazakh national dish: BEESHBARMACK

  • Uzbeck national dish: MANTI

  • ask what each is made of, and the answer is…


The same just like the new economy l.jpg
…“the same” (2001)- just like the “new economy”

  • lots of words that mean the same thing

  • the new economy is a:

    • super buzzphrase encompassing the knowledge driven economy, the digital economy, the service economy, the global economy…the weightless (or dematerialised) economy (Philpott, 2001)

  • or how about:

    • Innovation systems, industrial milieu, the learning region, the intelligent region, associative consensual economies…

  • they all mean that innovation has become the most important economic driver


Supposed features of the new economy l.jpg
Supposed features of the new economy (2001)

  • essentially IT/internet driven:

    • is biotech the new new economy?

  • it means the end of:

    • place/distance

    • paper

    • hierarchy and organisation

    • the office


The new economy rewrites economic laws l.jpg
…the new economy rewrites economic laws (2001)

  • network connections create exponential growth

  • the end of scarcity

    • value increases with plenty

  • increasing not diminishing returns

  • externalities, clusters and networks are key

  • ultimately, demand curves slope upwards


This has strategic implications l.jpg
This has strategic implications (2001)

  • it’s about empowerment, delegation, decentralisation, flat structures

    • but not inevitably or always

  • it’s about innovation and continual change, not efficiency

    • but many industries depend on stability and efficiency

  • it’s about bits, not atoms

    • but you can’t move products down the wire

  • it’s a gift economy with zero prices

    • sometimes, but in all industries?


How new or different is this l.jpg
How new or different is this? (2001)

  • Marshall (C19th) emphasised clusters and knowledge in the industrial revolution

  • it’s about product and process innovation

  • anything can be part of the new economy

  • oil and gas is high tech/knowledge-based

    • but also about resource and capital

  • don’t pursue it dogmatically

    • Tees Valley is writing off bulk chemicals (the “old economy”) and going for digital media


Some concluding thoughts l.jpg
Some concluding thoughts (2001)

  • it doesn’t matter if an industry is “new”

    • is it – or could it be – competitive?

  • biotech is at a very early stage

    • many years to achieve big job impacts

  • the future evolves from the past

    • exploit what you have including electronics

  • don’t accept the hype

    • there’s much in the new economy

    • but we need real knowledge/analytical skills
