© 2014, © 2014 Taylor & Francis. Knowledge and organizational learning may be said to move in and through circuits. I shall demonstrate that macro events frame the development of forms of organizational knowing and knowledge, learning and capabilities. Using an ideal typical approach, in which certain aspects of reality are artificially accentuated for analytical reasons, the implications of two major relatively recent crises will be examined: the collapse of the USSR and the global financial crisis. Very different lessons flow from understanding these crises. After presenting brief histories of the present, I shall turn to discussion of the relations between social and system integration and the new social media, before drawing some conclusions with implications for thinking about circuits of power/knowledge.
