The geopolitics of the knowledge-based economy entails a state-orchestrated production of new professional citizen-subjects for the purposes of global knowledge-intensive capitalism. According to twentieth-century classical geopolitics, the territory of the state is understood as providing both "physical advantages" and setting possible limitations or material constraints on inter-state competition. Knowledge-based economization is a process which transcends the territorial-relational dualism. The transformation of urban politics in the age of knowledge-based economization is a notable scholarly issue that merits further scholarly attention. Knowledge-based economization re-articulates the nature of inter-state competition and downplays the importance of the state as a bounded piece of land or physical territory. The contemporary knowledge-based economization, thus, highlights the role of the private sector in determining the level of development among political communities. The interconnections between the contemporary form of knowledge-based economization and uneven geographical development require further scholarly attention.
