variants of the knowledge-based society

in Dubai: (via Chris Collison)
The ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, says he is giving $10bn (£5bn) to set up an educational foundation in the Middle East.
The money is meant to improve the standard of education and research in the region, and aims to stimulate job creation, Sheikh Mohammed said.

in Europe: Lisbon 2010:
" become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world, capable of sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion." (strategic goal for 2010 set for Europe at the Lisbon European Council - March 2000)

well, things are just .... different.
