Having looked at Mary Cloake’s presentation, I didn’t report it correctly. The three points are in fact
*Jobs Jobs Jobs
*National Pride/ International Reputation
There is a problem in that nobody really knows what the smart economy is. Come on, admit it. Rather than ditching that point maybe now is the time to do a bit of research to find the substance behind the buzz words. I think that the European study linked to on this page has some interesting material in it. Feel free to post any other sources in the comments below.
