Nations are measured by their wealth of economic resources, material capabilities, their ability to manage crises and create the future, and the success of their performance in supporting local energies. The recurrence of external crises and the increase in their severity prompted the countries of the world to change their strategy in building expectations about the future and their preparations in mobilizing economic resources.
Therefore, most countries of the world have been isolating the influence of rentier resources and moving towards the other side of the equation, which is the human element. It is the decision maker, and is able to build distinct economic surpluses and is able to repel the attacks of crises and internal and external turmoil.
Building a knowledge economy requires a long-term investment that starts from kindergarten and then primary education to university education. Through it, generation after generation is built, educated and mature, able to think extensively to solve problems and obstacles, have insight into resource management and achieve gratification, able to lead in an outstanding and creative manner, with scientific outputs and outstanding practical contributions.
This element has proven over decades its determination to defeat all the problems and difficulties it faces, and is able to determine its fate well despite all the obstacles it faces. The epidemic, and that the cognitive focus is the one who created the solution by creating vaccines that would weaken this enemy and reduce its ferocity in the mastery of the human race.
Iraq enjoys lofty and creative minds, but it needs the opportunity to see the light, especially as it is on the cusp of what is known as the stage of the demographic boom, as young people receive the largest share of the population. Preparing this population group well enables Iraq to access the knowledge economy, and the decision maker must take care of all age groups, the most important of which is the new generation, which will be a maker of the future, in light of the difficult circumstances that Iraq is experiencing.
The structure of schools and universities is destroyed and does not enjoy local or international support, and the spread of poverty has forced many students to leave school to engage in business in order to secure a livelihood for their families, and a severe weakness in research centers across the country, and thus increased and expanded ignorance and lack of knowledge, which threatens With an unknown future in light of a clear neglect of the knowledge economy, and societal values took the direction of protecting ignorance and honoring it as a lofty goal in light of a broken economy unable to confront tomorrow.
