In this paper we deal with the concept of the learning economy and its suitability to describe the modern globalizing economy. We contend that in contrast to the many fleeting catchwords and phrases found in economics and public policy, the notion of the learning economy represents a superior conceptual starting point, which reflects a new and emerging economic regime. Even though it is still circumscribed to a small minority of developed countries, the learning economy offers a concrete example for the more numerous ‘have nots’ of the world to emulate.
