The world is moving away from traditional forms of production. Today’s economy is driven by knowledge. But only some people and places are reaping the rewards.

Nesta’s vision is for a more inclusive knowledge economy. We believe that this should be a priority for the next government. For a summary of our recommendations see our animation on the knowledge economy.

As the country prepares to head to the polls, with the debate dominated by short-term issues, Nesta is examining party manifestos to see who is truly grappling with the biggest challenges of today to ensure everyone can benefit from a brighter tomorrow.

As well as manifesto analysis, we are tracking the public's prediction of what will happen in the general election using collective intelligence tools.
