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

29 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in English and held by 1,166 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
Technology, economic growth, and public policy; a Rand Corporation and Brookings Institution study by Richard R Nelson( Book )

37 editions published between 1967 and 1973 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oxford handbook of innovation by Jan Fagerberg( Book )

34 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 689 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 )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and Japanese and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because governments increasingly believe that long-term wealth creation depends on superior technical skills, they are inclined to provide direct or indirect assistance to potential technological winners. This raises the risk of trade and subsidy wars
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 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a comprehensive study of the current state of knowledge of the convergence hypothesis. The hypothesis asserts that at least since the Second World War, and perhaps for a considerable period before that, the group of industrial countries was growing increasingly homogeneous in terms of levels of productivity, technology and per capita incomes. In addition, there was general catch up toward the leader country, the United States, throughout most of the pertinent period."--BOOK JACKET. "Convergence of Productivity examines patterns displayed by individual industries within countries as well as the aggregate economies, various influences that underlie the process of convergence, and the role that convergence has played and promises to play in the future of the newly industrialized nations and the less developed countries. Much of the analysis is set in a historical perspective, with particular attention paid to the record following World War II. The editors conclude that increasing productivity is the key to raising living standards in a globalized marketplace."--BOOK JACKET. "Comprising the work of some of the most distinguished scholars in the field, Convergence of Productivity constitutes a major contribution to the convergence debate and should be read by all economists, as well as economic historians, government policy makers, and scholars of public administration."--BOOK JACKET
The sources of economic growth by Richard R Nelson( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Technological advance is the key driving force behind economic growth, argues Richard Nelson.

Technology, institutions, and economic growth by Richard R Nelson( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 548 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

National innovation systems : a comparative analysis by Richard R Nelson( Book )

26 editions published in 1993 in English and Italian and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The slowdown of growth in Western industrialized nations in the last twenty years, along with the rise of Japan as a major economic and technological power (and enhanced technical sophistication of Taiwan, Korea, and other NICs) has led to what the authors believe to be a ""techno-nationalism."" This combines a strong belief that technological capabilities of a nation's firms are a key source of their competitive process, with a belief that these capabilities are in a sense national, and can be built by national action. This book is about these national systems of technical innovation. The hea

The limits of market organization( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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.
