Paths of innovation : technological change in 20th century America by David C Mowery( )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 2,452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors focus on three areas of innovation that have dominated American technology in this century: the internal combustion engine, electricity/electronics, and chemistry. These three clusters of innovation are also highly research-intensive, allowing Mowery and Rosenberg to explore the importance of both "science" and technological innovation and improvement in realizing the economic consequences of technological advances. The cases of chemicals and the internal combustion engine also offer a lesson in the influence of geography and available resources on technological development." "Throughout their book, Mowery and Rosenberg demonstrate that the simultaneous emergence of new engineering and applied science disciplines in the universities in tandem with growth in the R & D industry and scientific research has been a primary factor in the rapid rate of technological change."--Jacket

Exploring the black box : technology, economics, and history by Nathan Rosenberg( )

26 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 1,887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Rosenberg pays particular attention to the nature of the research process out of which new technologies have emerged. A central theme of the book is the idea that technological changes are often "path dependent" in the sense that their form and direction tend to be influenced strongly by the particular sequence of earlier events out of which a new technology has emerged. As a result, attempting to theorize about technologies without taking these factors into account is likely to fail to capture their most essential features. The book advances our understanding of technological change by explicitly recognizing its essential diversity and path-dependent nature. Individual chapters explore the particular features of new technologies in different historical and sectoral contexts
Schumpeter and the endogeneity of technology : some American perspectives by Nathan Rosenberg( )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 1,709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores Schumpeter's views as an economist who was, long ago, committed to the notion of the endogeneity of technology. His mature writings offer illuminating historical analyses of how and why some social systems have managed to generate innovation. This element of his vision deserves far more attention than it has so far received, and this book redresses the balance. Moreover, bringing us up-to-date, Nathan Rosenberg explores the ways in which the concept of endogeneity illuminates recent American economic history."--Jacket
Studies on science and the innovation process : selected works by Nathan Rosenberg( )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science and technology have become increasingly intertwined in the twentieth century. However, little attention has been paid to the forces that have brought about this condition. Indeed, many scholars have taken it simply for granted that causality always runs from science to technology. In this groundbreaking book, Rosenberg's research suggests that history and extensive empirical evidence lead to a reality that is far more complex as well as far more interesting. Here, Rosenberg's papers explore a wide range of pertinent issues, especially those connected with the innovative process, including the realms of electric power, electronics, chemicals, aircraft, medicine, instrumentation and, in particular, higher education and the organization of research activities

Chemicals and long-term economic growth : insights from the chemical industry by Ashish Arora( )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With economic and managerial insights supported by specific real-world examples, this book shows how the development of the chemical industry can provide insights for achieving and sustaining economic growth. Scientists and business leaders in the chemical industry and many other technological fields, and economists generally, may benefit from the history and analysis presented in this book. This book examines the role of science, innovation, technology, and organization in creating economic growth and profits; chemical industry growth in Germany, Britain, the United States, and Japan, including an analysis of relative strengths and weaknesses; the impact of macroeconomics, legal and financial institutions, corporate finance, and other policies and institutions on the behavior of chemical companies; and the principle of comparative advantage - why certain industries excel in certain areas

Technology and the pursuit of economic growth by David C Mowery( Book )

33 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technology's contribution to economic growth and competitiveness has been the subject of vigorous debate in recent years. This book demonstrates the importance of a historical perspective in understanding the role of technological innovation in the economy. The authors examine key episodes and institutions in the development of the U.S. research system and in the development of the research systems of other industrial economies. They argue that the large potential contributions of economics to the understanding of technology and economic growth have been constrained by the narrow theoretical framework employed within neoclassical economies. A richer framework, they believe, will support a more fruitful dialogue among economists, policymakers, and managers on the organization of public and private institutions for innovation. David Mowery is Associate Professor of Business and Public Policy at the School of Business Administration, University of California, Berkeley. Nathan S. Rosenberg is Fairleigh Dickinson Professor of Economics at Stanford University. He is the author of Inside the Black Box: Technology and Economics (CUP, 1983)

Technology and the wealth of nations( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most discussions of U.S. economic competitiveness focus on the creation of new technologies, but the abundant evidence presented in this timely book indicates that the key factor underpinning U.S. competitiveness is not the development of technology itself, but the factors that influence the commercialization of technology. The importance of effective management and performance in the commercialization of new technologies reflects today's changing environment. The post-war decades of undisputed U.S. scientific and technological hegemony have been replaced by a period in which U.S. firms are challenged by foreign competitors in some fields, and struggling to regain their former positions in others. Although the U.S. scientific research establishment arguably has lost little if any of its post-war preeminence, the same cannot be said with respect to the performance of U.S. firms as developers, adapters, and managers of new technologies, largely because government policies have not been conducive to successful commercialization of technology. As we enter the last decade of the twentieth century, economic policy and performance are being linked more and more closely to technology-related issues. Technology commercialization is now recognized as critical to this linkage, and this book constitutes a state-of-the-art analysis of this vital but often overlooked aspect of technological innovation. The sixteen papers in this volume contribute to three important tasks. First, they draw on new developments in theoretical and empirical analysis to integrate the macro-and microeconomic dimensions of technological innovation and commercialization. Second, they extend and enrich the macroeconomic analysis of growth, capital formation, and international economic interactions to highlight the influences of macroeconomic variables on technology commercialization. Technology and capital investment are shown to be complementary inputs to the growth process, which means that favorable investment conditions are prerequisites for higher growth rates. Third, they also extend and enrich the microeconomic analysis of technological innovation and commercialization, in the process providing guidance for managers seeking to improve performance in both of the areas

Sources of medical technology : universities and industry by Annetine Gelijns( Book )

2 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evidence suggests that medical innovation is becoming increasingly dependent on interdisciplinary research and on the crossing of institutional boundaries. This volume focuses on the conditions governing the supply of new medical technologies and suggest that the boundaries between disciplines, institutions, and the private and public sectors have been redrawn and reshaped. Individual essays explore the nature, organization, and management of interdisciplinary R & D in medicine; the introduction into clinical practice of the laser, endoscopic innovations, cochlear implantation, cardiovascular imaging technologies, and synthetic insulin; the division of innovating labor in biotechnology; the government- industry-university interface; perspectives on industrial R & D management; and the growing intertwining of the public and proprietary in medical technology
