Abstract

Follow up to the ERSC's earlier report, "The Social and Economic Challenges of Nanotechnology" that examines how the debate has moved on in the years since 2003. The authors outline how the debate about the potential social, ethical and economic impact of nanotechnolgy was first framed, present an overview of the literature published since 2003, and draw conclusions from the literature. The report argues that the social side of the debate should be broadened to include a wider set of issues, more economics, and more attention paid to the social processes through which nanotechnology as an area develops and nanotechnology products emerge.
