  1. The Technology Imperative

    The Technology Imperative

    Gregory Tassey
    The convergence of technology-based competitive capabilities among the world’s economies has drastically altered the required economic growth strategies in industrialized nations. Based on a variety of corporate and government investment trend data and comparisons among national growth strategies, Gregory Tassey examines how this convergence has created an imperative for new growth models and strategies. In particular, he analyzes the major policy mechanisms for stimulating R&D investment and improving R&D efficiency over technology life cycles, detailing the needed changes. Learn More

  9. Industrial Agglomeration and New Technologies

    Industrial Agglomeration and New Technologies

    Edited by Masatsugo Tsuji, Emanuelo Giovannetti, Mitsuhiro Kagami
    This book, a collaborative effort by researchers from Japan, Italy and the USA, seeks to explore the reasons for industrial clustering in certain regions of Asia, Europe and North America. The studies presented illustrate real examples of industrial clusters, adding anecdotal evidence to the emerging theory of economic geography by exemplifying the centripetal and centrifugal forces that regulate the clustering process. The authors examine clusters in a diverse set of countries including China, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, the USA and Vietnam. Significantly, the book provides an interesting split between studies of IT and software-related industries, and more traditional sectors, such as steel and vehicle manufacturing. Learn More

  13. The Growth of Cities

    The Growth of Cities

    Edited by Zoltán J. Ács
    To understand why some regions grow and others stagnate, we need to understand the interactions between economic growth, economic geography and the economics of innovation. Each of these individual approaches has strengths and weaknesses, but when integrated it is possible, as evidenced by this volume, to develop an appropriate model of technology-led regional economic development.

  14. Patents and the Measurement of International Competitiveness

    Patents and the Measurement of International Competitiveness

    William Kingston, Kevin Scally
    This highly original book represents a major advance in the use of patents to compare countries’ technological competitiveness. It tabulates and analyses 280,000 United States patents from countries across the world over a ten year period. Specifically, these patents were granted to ‘not-for-profit’ entities (mainly universities and research institutes), firms with no more than 500 employees, or to individual inventors. For each of these groups, the book provides statistics and discussion on how long patents are kept in force, the extent to which they are cited, and how far inventions made in different countries are in fact owned in the United States.

  15. Asia’s Innovation Systems in Transition

    Asia’s Innovation Systems in Transition

    Edited by Bengt-Åke Lundvall, Patarapong Intarakumnerd, Jan Vang
    The success of Asian economies (first Japan, then Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and, more recently, China and India) has made it tempting to look for ‘an Asian model of development’. However, the strength of Asian development lies less in strategies that reproduce successful national systems of innovation and more in the capacity for institutional change to open up new development trajectories with greater emphasis on knowledge and learning. The select group of contributors demonstrate that although there are important differences among Asian countries in terms of institutional set-ups supporting innovation, government policies and industrial structures, they share common transitional processes to cope with the globalizing learning economy.

  19. Mergers and Acquisitions

    Mergers and Acquisitions

    Edited by Bruno Cassiman, Massimo G. Colombo
    This book examines the issue of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) in the context of technological development, and in particular the impact of M&As on the innovation process. In so doing, the book integrates two bodies of literature, on M&As, and on innovation studies, a nexus which the editors contend represents an important step in the advancement of our understanding of both with clear implications for competitive advantage and growth of firms. Drawing on perspectives from both management and economics, the book offers a cohesive blend of theory, methodology, and a wealth of empirical material. Learn More

  20. An Economic Analysis of Innovation

    An Economic Analysis of Innovation

    Markus Balzat
    The economic analysis of innovation is important because economic growth in highly industrialized countries and international competitiveness are driven by innovations and technological change. At the same time, marked nation-specific features exist in the structure of innovative activities and in innovative success. For the study of these national characteristics, the concept of national innovation systems constitutes a powerful and widely applied inter-disciplinary framework in modern innovation theory. This book illuminates this concept from different perspectives. Starting from fundamental conceptual and theoretical issues, it describes and discusses the main development lines of the approach of national innovation systems, and goes on to illustrate an empirical application of this branch of research, offering a new alternative for the quantitative comparative study of national innovation systems.
