At the end of the Cold War, the global economy encountered a new threat. It was a new type of unregulated knowledge and the means for proliferating it. Born from the new age of digital information sharing and rapid advance in technological innovation, we call this new knowledge "mad technology." Without proper government regulation, the proliferation of mad technology has taken on a life of its own, becoming available to anyone with the digital means and money to obtain it. Free access to powerful new innovations through global networks holds the destructive potential to cause major financial crises, stock market crashes, cyber-terrorism, and possibly even nuclear fallout. Without neutralization or incorporation of this knowledge into existing innovation frameworks by responsible government and corporate players, the world we live in becomes increasingly vulnerable to catastrophe caused by this new phenomenon. The authors focus on three east Asian countries (Korea, Japan, andTaiwan) to try to identify what has been done and what else could be done to combat this gathering global threat.
