Tucked away in Quebec, Canada, SPACEPOL Academic Publishers has for more than a decade been producing academic books that have shed light on topics ranging from Space Law and National Innovation to Brain Drain and Minority-led High-knowledge Entrepreneurship. The publisher has been called "a librarian's best friend" and "government corruption's worst nightmare." 

A recent sample of books and periodicals by SPACEPOL Academic Publishers is true to this reputation and guaranteed not to disappoint readers in communities as disparate as the press or universities.

Business Management and Economics - There's Something Rotten in the State of Europe

The fact that the Nordic countries and much of Europe would prefer to be "international" in one direction only and tend to exclude non-indigenous talent and entrepreneurship from their markets through informal social mechanisms is not new knowledge. How talented entrepreneurs and those businesses on the receiving end perceive it and react is a major contribution of SPACEPOL titles such as the"'Original History of The SPACEPOL Corporation." 

This detailed brain drain account illustrates how high-knowledge business and innovators will re-orient their business activities or markets and eventually leave societies that are incapable of utilizing or outright unwilling to take advantage of non-native knowledge capital.

The flow of knowledge capital clearly points toward inclusive markets and away from exclusive and protectionist societies. The book paints a disturbing picture that is in stark contrast with the idyllic one frequently promoted by countries such as Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark when seeking foreign investment. Bureaucracy or high taxes are not among the obstacles mentioned in the book. Apathy, discrimination, risk avoidance and perceived dishonesty are.

The book is obligatory and due diligence reading for any investor or business thinking of conducting activities in northern Europe. 

The "Journal of the Governor of The SPACEPOL Corporation" deals with nuanced economic analysis conducted at The SPACEPOL Corporation. Although intended primarily for corporate use in choosing investment and business markets, the unsettling results of the studies made their way to media in the Middle East and Africa in 2011. 

In brief, many of the factors behind the current economic decline and malaise are not easily quantified or regulated by the programs of agencies such as the OECD, the World Bank or the IMF. Not all economic recessions are created equal. The current situation is uniquely generational and cultural in nature in the West. Unlikely nations such as Iran, Russia and Syria are set to overtake the West in a not-so-distant future.

Government Technology Programmes Could Face Enron-style Scandals

SPACEPOL Academic Publishers is also set to release a new book entitled "Technological Revolution as Political Coup D'etat" in November.

The author, multilingual administrative scientist Gunnar K. A. Njalsson, is likely to be as impopular with product-peddling technology giants as "Fortune" columnist Bethany McLean when she asked exactly how Enron was making its money. The academically peer-reviewed book which was commenced already in 2002 introduces the Integrated Model for Technology Policy Analysis (IMTPA) and hopes to provide a systematic and more level-headed tool for analysing and creating public technology policy.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
