Convergence of productivity : cross-national studies and historical evidence by William J Baumol( )

21 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,904 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."--Jacket

23 editions published in 1993 in English and Italian and held by 1,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Techno-nationalism and techno-globalism : conflict and cooperation by Sylvia Ostry( )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and Japanese and held by 1,873 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
The nature and dynamics of organizational capabilities by Giovanni Dosi( )

34 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 1,731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this book is to offer both theoretical analysis and detailed evidence from a number of studies at the levels of individual firms, sectors, and broader international patterns. These enable a richer understanding of the processes involved and highlight their contributions to business performance."--Jacket
The limits of market organization by Richard R Nelson( )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last quarter century has seen a broad, but qualified, belief in the efficacy of market organization slide into an unyielding dogma that the market, as unconstrained as possible, is the best way to govern virtually all economic activity. However, unrestricted markets can often lead to gross inequalities in access to important resources, the creation of monopolies, and other negative effects that require regulation or public subsidies to remedy. In "The Limits of Market Organization," editor Richard Nelson and a group of economic experts take a look at the public/private debate, noting where markets are useful, where they can be effective only if augmented by non-market mechanisms, and where they are simply inappropriate."

The Oxford handbook of innovation by Jan Fagerberg( Book )

38 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 790 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

Sources of industrial leadership : studies of seven industries( Book )

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book describes and analyzes how seven major high-tech industries evolved in the United States, Japan, and Western Europe. The industries covered are machine tools, organic chemical products, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, computers, semiconductors, and software. In each of these industries, firms located in one country or a very few countries became the clear technological and commercial leaders. In a number of cases, the locus of leadership changed, sometimes more than once, over the course of the histories studied. The emphasis of the book is on the key factors that supported the emergence of national leadership in each industry, and the reasons behind the shifts when they occurred
Technology, institutions, and economic growth by Richard R Nelson( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 552 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 )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on a deep knowledge of economic and technological history as well as the tools of economic analysis, he exposes the intimate connections among government policies, science-based universities, and the growth of technology."--Publisher

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays discuss how firms, particularly those in electronics and automobiles, have dynamically accumulated technological capabilities at the micro level and how public policies have shaped the process of technological progress at the national level, and they discuss what problems some of these countries face today at both levels. In addition, the volume provides a comparative picture of East Asian NIEs with Latin American counterparts. The discussion also offers useful lessons for policies in other developing countries. The volume is an important contribution to a debate that is of interest to academics as well as professionals in the policy field."--Jacket
