In this book, part of the Brookings Integrating National Economies series, F.M.

Attempts to harmonize them through multilateral institutions, such as the European Union, are examined
New perspectives on economic growth and technological innovation by F. M Scherer( Book )

19 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, F.M. Scherer traces the evolution of economic growth theory from the Industrial Revolution to the present. Emphasizing technological change as the most crucial dynamic force for growth, Scherer analyzes early hypotheses that paid little attention to new technologies, follows the emergence of theories that increasingly emphasized technological change, and reviews the current state of economic growth theory. Pointing out a lack of solid microbehavioral foundations to support contemporary "new growth" ideas, Scherer then supplies some foundational "bricks" concerning financial investment and human capital and concludes by exploring the prospects for sustaining rapid growth into the next century."--Jacket

International high-technology competition by F. M Scherer( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the 1970s and 1980s, American manufacturing enterprises saw their technological dominance challenged by increasingly tough competition from abroad. This book investigates business responses to those challenges. On average, F.M. Scherer shows, 308 U.S. companies reacted to rising imports of high-technology products by cutting back research and development expenditures as a percentage of sales. The cutbacks were particularly large in industries protected by voluntary trade restraint agreements and other trade barriers." "Using statistical data and eleven in-depth case studies, Scherer finds that company responses to new high-technology competition from abroad were highly diverse. Aggressive reactions predominated in firms producing color film, wet shavers, medical imaging apparatus, fiber optics, and earth-moving equipment. But the efforts of U.S. manufacturers in other lines such as color television, VCRs, and facsimile machines were too meager to repel technologically innovative overseas challengers." "Exploring why reactions differed so much from case to case, Scherer finds systematic explanations in such variables as the multinationality of enterprises, domestic market structure, links to academic science bases, and the educational background of top managers. He concludes by offering proposals to improve the competitiveness of American high-technology companies."--Jacket

Entrepreneurship, technological innovation, and economic growth : studies in the Schumpeterian tradition by International J.A. Schumpeter Society( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph A. Schumpeter emphasized the crucial role that technological innovation and change play in generating economic growth; entrepreneurship as a driving force in the achievement of innovation; and the process of creative destruction through which innovation constantly reshapes the very market structure out of which it arises." "In this volume, a number of essays consider, in the Schumpeterian tradition, the decline in average rates of productivity growth that most of the world's industrial economies have experienced since the early 1970s. A group of leading international scholars exlores this critical issue in terms of the fundamental linkages among economic growth, innovation, and entrepreneurship that may underlie at least a part of the observed productivity growth slowdown."--BOOK JACKET

This review draws on a collection of seminal writings dealing with the development of competition policy in Europe, the United States and Japan. It begins by discussing the writings of leading philosophers and scholars on the rationale and desirability of competition in market economies. These interpretations range in time of origin from ancient Greece through to Adam Smith and James Madison to very recent contributions in the competition policy debate. Having established relevant philosophical foundations, the review offers analyses by leading British, American, German and Japanese scholars on the interpretation and administration of laws concerning price-fixing and other restrictive agreements, market dominance and monopolization, predatory practices and mergers
