A theory is appropriate as long as it fits into the fact; when a theory doesn't fit in the fact, it's wise to walk with the fact.

Knowledge-based Asian Economies

Asian Development Bank (ADB) publishes a paper 'Innovative Asia: Advancing the Knowledge-Based Economy' with status of Asia-Pacific economies based on the World Bank developed the Knowledge Economy Index (KEI) using a four-pillar framework: (i) Economic and Institutional Regime; (ii) Education and skill of population; (iii) Information infrastructure; and (iv) Innovative system. The paper is probably one of the few which captures the current state of knowledge-based economies, and one may easily see the status of Bangladesh also. One comment: It's not satisfactory at all!
