An evolutionary theory of economic change by Richard R Nelson( Book )

28 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the most sustained and serious attack on mainstreem, neoclassical economics in morethan forty years. Nelson and Winter focus their critique on the basic question of how firms and industries cange over time. They marshal significant objections to the fundamental neoclassical assumptions of profit maximization and market equilibrium, which they find ineffective in the analysis of technological innovation and the dynamics of competition among firms

The Oxford handbook of innovation by Jan Fagerberg( Book )

36 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This handbook looks to provide academies and students with a comprehensive and holistic understanding of the phenomenon of innovation. Innovation spans a number of fields within the social sciences and humanities: Management, Economies, Geography, Sociology, Policy Studies, Psychology, and History. Consequently, the rapidly increasing body of literature on innovation is characterized by a multitude of perspectives based on, or cutting across, existing disciplines and specializations. Scholars of innovation can come from such diverse starting points that much of this literature can be missed, and so constructive dialogs missed."--Jacket
Techno-nationalism and techno-globalism : conflict and cooperation by Sylvia Ostry( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Techno-Nationalism and Techno-Globalism: Conflict and Cooperation is a broad-ranging study of the technological competitiveness of nations. It examines the origins of trade and public policy conflict in the United States, Japan, France, and Germany; the friction between countries caused by shifts in competitiveness; the role of trade policy in both causing and attempting to resolve these frictions; and the scope for new initiatives aimed at strengthening international cooperation. The authors argue that the margin of the U.S. technology lead has been narrowing since the 1960s, caused in part by the rise of Japanese industry in a variety of high-tech industries, and in part by the rapid circulation of information and diffusion of technology. They show how changes in technical competitiveness have created new sources of economic conflict between nations
Convergence of productivity : cross-national studies and historical evidence by William J Baumol( Book )

19 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of original articles reviews the current state of knowledge concerning the convergence hypothesis. This hypothesis asserts that, for a restricted set of countries, their productivity and living standards are undergoing a process that brings them increasingly close to one another. Among the factors considered are patterns of industries as well as aggregate economies, influences that underlie the degree of convergence that seems to have occurred, and the role that convergence plays in the future of the newly developed nations. Much of the analysis is set in historical perspective
Technology, institutions, and economic growth by Richard R Nelson( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Richard R. Nelson mounts a full-blown attack on the standard neoclassical theory of economic growth, which he sees as hopelessly inadequate to explain the phenomenon. His alternative theory posits that economic growth driven by technological advance involves disequilibrium in a fundamental and continuing way. Nelson argues that an adequate theory must take into account a range of institutions, from universities to public laboratories and from government agencies to business firms and markets."--Jacket
The sources of economic growth by Richard R Nelson( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technological advance is the key driving force behind economic growth, argues Richard Nelson. Investments in physical and human capital contribute to growth largely as handmaidens to technological advance. Technological advance needs to be understood as an evolutionary process, depending much more on "e× post" selection and learning than on "e× ante" calculation. That is why it proceeds much more rapidly under conditions of competition than under monopoly or oligopoly

The limits of market organization( Book )

"This important volume shows that market organization has its virtues, but also its drawbacks. Just as regulation can be over-applied, so too can market principles.
