  3. Sectoral Systems of Innovation and Production in Developing Countries

    Sectoral Systems of Innovation and Production in Developing Countries

    Edited by Franco Malerba, Sunil Mani
    This book examines in detail the features and dynamics of sectoral systems of innovation and production in developing countries. Processes of rapid growth are usually associated with specific sectors such as automobiles, electronics or software, as well as with the transformation of traditional sectors such as agriculture and food. The book shows, however, that the variations across all these sectors in terms of structure and dynamics is so great that a full understanding of these differences is necessary if innovation is to be encouraged and growth sustained.

  5. Multinationals and Emerging Economies

    Multinationals and Emerging Economies

    Edited by Wilfred Dolfsma, Geert Duysters, Ionara Costa
    The global economy is changing rapidly and multinational corporations (MNCs) are at the forefront of this transformation. This book provides novel and profound analyses of how MNCs and emerging economies are related, and how this relationship affects the dynamics of the global economy. In particular, the authors deal with the nexus between multinationals, emerging economies and innovation from a variety of different perspectives. Innovation is regarded as a core driving force in the global economy but the authors show how it can impede as well as encourage sustainability. The book brings together insights from business studies and economics, and combines concise theoretical discussion with empirical analyses of unique data. Learn More

  11. Entrepreneurship and Openness

    Entrepreneurship and Openness

    Edited by David B. Audretsch, Robert E. Litan, Robert Strom
    A growing body of evidence has documented the critical role that entrepreneurs play in fostering economic growth. But entrepreneurs can only be expected to take risks in ‘open settings’, where individuals and firms are free to contract with one another. In this important book, leading economists explain and document the role of open markets, within and across national boundaries, in facilitating entrepreneurship, innovation and economic growth. The main message of this book is especially timely given growing concerns in developed countries in particular about off-shoring and openness to trade. Learn More

  12. Creating Value through Innovation

    Creating Value through Innovation

    Angelo Dringoli
    In open and dynamic markets, only innovation can give a firm a competitive advantage and with it the superior cash flows that generate value.

Quantitative models are used to determine the value of innovation strategies in highly dynamic and competitive industries. These clearly reveal the economic variables and relations upon which the strategy depends, and the conditions for creating sustainable value within the firm. Learn More

    The Dynamics of Standards

    Edited by Tineke M. Egyedi, Knut Blind
    This book addresses the new field of standards dynamics. It focuses in particular on the tension between standards and change.

  18. Innovation in Low-Tech Firms and Industries

    Innovation in Low-Tech Firms and Industries

    Edited by Hartmut Hirsch-Kreinsen, David Jacobson
    It is a general understanding that the advanced economies are currently undergoing a fundamental transformation into knowledge-based societies. There is a firm belief that this is based on the development of high-tech industries. Correspondingly, in this scenario low-tech sectors appear to be less important. A critique of this widely held belief is the starting point of this book. It is often overlooked that many of the current innovation activities are linked to developments inside the realm of low-tech. Thus the general objective of the book is to contribute to a discussion concerning the relevance of low-tech industries for industrial innovativeness in the emerging knowledge economy. Learn More

  20. The Genesis of Innovation

    The Genesis of Innovation

    Edited by Blandine Laperche, Dimitri Uzunidis, G. N. von Tunzelmann

By addressing the nature of these relationships, which include cooperation, competition and power, this book presents an important and progressive enquiry into the economic and social origins of innovation.
