The gene hunters : biotechnology and the scramble for seeds by Calestous Juma ( Book )
17 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The world is on the verge of receiving new life forms that will profoundly and irrevocably change the global economy: the ""gene hunters"" who first cloned the gene in 1973 are now not only modifying existing species but also creating new plants and animals. Ready or not for such awesome power, the human race has put itself in a position to govern evolution. What will we do with the abilities we now command? asks this broad and stimulating book on the role of plant material in economic development. Writing in a style that is easily understandable even to those with no background in biotechn
Long-run economics : an evolutionary approach to economic growth by Norman Clark ( Book )
20 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A major problem of conventional economic theory as applied to long-run economic change is its unduly narrow and static character, which compromises its capacity to handle conceptually a social process inherently systemic, complex and dynamic. At the same time there is a growing realization in relevant government and industrial circles (reinforced by the example of Japan) that effective economic policy-making needs a strategic, and therefore a technological, content. Long-Run Economics suggests a more realistic conceptual framework for the analysis of economic and technological change. Borrowing from other disciplines, such as sociology, psychology and biology, the authors develop a model that is evolutionary and systemic in character. Special emphasis is given to the role of information flows in the innovative process, while the overall argument is illustrated by two case studies, photovoltaics and fuel ethanol. Finally, the book stresses the strategic importance of science and technology policy and the role of appropriate institutions in facilitating long-run economic change."--Bloomsbury Publishing
The new harvest : agricultural innovation in Africa by Calestous Juma ( Book )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
African agriculture is currently at a crossroads, at which persistent food shortages are compounded by threats from climate change. But, as this book argues, Africa faces three major opportunities that can transform its agriculture into a force for economic growth: advances in science and technology; the creation of regional markets; and the emergence of a new crop of entrepreneurial leaders dedicated to the continent's economic improvement. Filled with case studies from within Africa and success stories from developing nations around the world, The New Harvest outlines the policies and instit
