  1. Applied Evolutionary Economics

    Applied Evolutionary Economics

    Edited by Pier Paolo Saviotti
    The expert contributors to this book examine recent developments in empirical methods and applied simulation in evolutionary economics. Using examples of innovation and technology in industry, it is the first book to address the following questions in a systematic manner: Can evolutionary economics use the same empirical methods as other research traditions in economics?; Is there a need for empirical methods appropriate to the subject matter chosen?; What is the relationship between appreciative theorising, case studies and more structured empirical methods?; and What is the relationship of modelling and simulation to empirical analysis?

  2. Corporate Technological Competence and the Evolution of Technological Diversification

    Corporate Technological Competence and the Evolution of Technological Diversification

    Felicia M. Fai
    Drawing upon evolutionary economics and resource-based approaches, the author utilises US patent data from 1930–1990 to examine the persistence of corporate technological competencies and their gradual erosion through diversifying incremental change. The book explores the changing nature of this diversification with respect to firm size, technological relatedness and technological complexity in 32 firms distributed across four broadly defined industrial sectors.

    Innovation and the Growth of Cities

    Zoltán J. Ács
    This new and original book by Zoltan Acs explores the relationship between industrial innovation and economic growth at the regional level, and reaches conclusions as to why some regions grow but others decline.

Dow, Bengt-åke Lundvall, Uskali Mäki, Bart Nooteboom and Marc R. Tool.

  9. Consumption and Growth

    Consumption and Growth

    Davide Gualerzi
    The theme of this extensive book is the relationship between consumption and growth in the context of the long run theory of effective demand. Taking Schumpeter’s views on economic development as a starting point, the author proposes an original framework for the analysis of consumption patterns as an element of growth in advanced market economies. The book examines the role of demand with respect to the theory of structural change and the theory of consumption at both the micro and macro level. The theoretical framework is employed to analyze the consumption-growth relationship and its implications for the process of structural evolution. Learn More

    Frontiers of Evolutionary Economics

    Edited by John Foster, J. Stanley Metcalfe
    Modern evolutionary economics is now nearly two decades old and in this excellent book, a distinguished group of evolutionary economists identify the most important developments and discuss the direction of future research. By moving away from traditional concerns with the operation of selection mechanisms towards a preoccupation with the manner in which the novelty and variety provide fuel for such mechanisms, the authors identify a key development in the field.

    Evolution and Path Dependence in Economic Ideas

    Edited by Pierre Garrouste, Stavros Ioannides
    Since the 1980s there has been a renewed interest in attempts to introduce a sense of history into economic literature.

The contributions collected in this volume share a critical stance towards the timelessness and a historical theorizing of mainstream economics. Learn More

  14. Marx, Veblen, and Contemporary Institutional Political Economy

    Marx, Veblen, and Contemporary Institutional Political Economy

    Phillip A. O’Hara
    This book uses an institutional–evolutionary approach to analyse economic problems associated with developments in capitalism during the second half of the twentieth century. It argues that economics should centre on institutions – the durable fabric of the economy over time. Drawing on the foundations of Marxist and institutional political economy, the book traces the lineages of institutional themes, as well as considering feminist, post-Keynesian, holistic economics and Schumpeterian perspectives. The nature of institutions in the growth and instability of capitalism is then explored with reference to social structures of accumulation. Learn More

    Employment Relations and National Culture

    Ferrie Pot
    Ferrie Pot analyses the impact of national culture on the way the employment relationship is organized using case studies from the United States and the Netherlands. Evidence from these countries suggests that nations respond to globalization in line with their cultural values. As such, this book challenges the widespread belief that global trends will lead to the homogenization of the employment relationship. Learn More

    Technology and Knowledge

    Edited by Pier P. Saviotti, Bart Nooteboom
    Technology and Knowledge emphasizes the importance of knowledge in the creation of technological change and innovation. The authors examine the role of knowledge underlying innovation, and the flows of knowledge and other interactions between and within firms. Combining empirical work with simulations to solve models which are too complex to be understood analytically, the book presents a balanced and complementary approach to an area that is critically important for economic growth and international competitiveness.

    The Legacy of Joseph A. Schumpeter

    Edited by Horst Hanusch
    This authoritative collection presents an overview of the widespread significance of Schumpeter's thought. Part I examines the reception accorded to Schumpeter's ideas by his contemporaries.

While the contributions on industrial economics are presented in neoclassical fashion, the studies of innovation economics and evolutionary modelling reveal further ramifications of Schumpeter's legacy. Part IV highlights the importance of Schumpeterian ideas on modern macroeconomic theories and the final part demonstrates the influence of his thought in other fields such as public finance, sociology, politics and history.
