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

26 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,129 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

36 editions published between 1967 and 1973 in 3 languages and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oxford handbook of innovation by Jan Fagerberg( Book )

32 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 612 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 )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 596 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 )

14 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive study is a collection of original articles that view 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, with gradual erosion of the gap between the leader country, the U.S., throughout most of the pertinent period, and that of the countries lagging most

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

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 535 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 526 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 )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 336 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.
