The objective of this paper is to stipulate that the new mode of regulation of the economy must be understood in terms of cognitive capitalism. We will keep the idea that the dynamics of transformation which confronted modern societies are characterized by the fact that the accumulation increasingly wear on knowledge. First, we will explain and argue our position with reference to some stylized facts and essential breaks that characterize the crisis of industrial capitalism and the transition to immaterial capitalism. It will also issue to put into perspective the nature of new challenges that characterize the advent of immaterial capitalism. We will also study the problem behind the formulation of the hypothesis of cognitive capitalism and the way that, far from being opposed, proposes to address the shortcomings of an approach that finance the autonomous actor and principal of all current changes of capitalism. Moreover, rather than revolution, the knowledge economy recovers mechanisms of economic development studied since the classical authors. We will spot if this economy is the "paradise" promised to developing countries. A key point is reported on the issue of knowledge production. Often discussed bias, this production does not explain clearly enough potential levers of territorial public action. This observation motivates the development of a model of knowledge production. All these benchmarks will be developed in the second part.
