  3. Applied Evolutionary Economics and the Knowledge-based Economy

    Applied Evolutionary Economics and the Knowledge-based Economy

    Edited by Andreas Pyka, Horst Hanusch
    This book focuses on knowledge-based economies and attempts to analyze dynamic innovation driven processes within those economies. It shows that evolutionary economics, and in particular the strand of applied industry and innovation studies often called Neo-Schumpeterian economics, has left the nursery of new academic approaches and is able to offer important insights for the understanding of socio-economic processes of change and development having a strong impact on economic reality all over the world. The contributions are summarized under four major sections – knowledge and cognition, studies of knowledge-based industries, the geographical dimension of knowledge-based economies and measuring and modelling for knowledge-based economies – and give a broad overview of the prolific research being undertaken in applied evolutionary economics.

  7. Technology and the Decline in Demand for Unskilled Labour

    Technology and the Decline in Demand for Unskilled Labour

    Mark Sanders
    The position of low skilled workers in the labour market has deteriorated significantly over the past three decades. What has caused this deterioration in low skilled labour demand and what can explain the different labour market responses throughout the OECD? Mark Sanders addresses these questions and evaluates proposed policies to improve upon the present situation and prevent further deterioration in the future. Learn More

  10. Regional Economies as Knowledge Laboratories

    Regional Economies as Knowledge Laboratories

    Edited by Philip Cooke, Andrea Piccaluga
    Today, the study of regions is central to academic analysis and policy deliberation on how to respond to the rise of the knowledge economy. Regional Economies as Knowledge Laboratories illustrates how newer types of regional analysis – utilising scientometrics, knowledge services measures and university networks, and concepts such as knowledge life cycles, experimental knowledge creation, and knowledge ethics – are leading to a perception that regional economies increasingly resemble knowledge laboratories.

  14. Financial Systems, Corporate Investment in Innovation, and Venture Capital

    Financial Systems, Corporate Investment in Innovation, and Venture Capital

    Edited by Anthony Bartzokas, Sunil Mani
    This book examines the role of venture capital institutions in financing technology-based ventures both in developed and developing countries. It also explores that part of venture capital activity which is hitherto vastly under-researched; namely the ability of venture capital institutions to render a whole host of value-added support functions. These include setting up management teams and designing strategic plans for fledgling enterprises. The latter issue is operationalized through a series of carefully chosen case studies. Learn More

  15. Knowledge, Inequality and Growth in the New Economy

    Knowledge, Inequality and Growth in the New Economy

    Richard Nahuis
    During the past two centuries, major technological breakthroughs such as the steam engine and electricity have acted as the catalysts for growth and have resulted in a marked increase in material well-being. The dominant technology today – information and communication technology (ICT) – does not seem to drive growth as effectively and has coincided with an apparent increase in wage inequality. This book provides explanations of these two characteristics of modern economies and analyses them from both an individual and integrated perspective. Learn More

  17. Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation

    Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation

    Edited by John Cantwell, José Molero
    Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation explores the extent to which multinational enterprises (MNEs) are decentralising the creation of new technological capabilities to various different countries. The book contends that technological strategies and innovation activities undertaken by firms are a critical part of the increasing internationalisation of economic activity, and that MNEs are the main actors for these changes. It goes on to explain that MNEs must now effectively manage new technological assets in order to cope with extensive changes in the nature of international competition. Learn More

  20. Innovation, Competence Building and Social Cohesion in Europe

    Innovation, Competence Building and Social Cohesion in Europe

    Edited by Pedro Conceição, Manuel V. Heitor, Bengt-Åke Lundvall
    It is almost universally accepted that we are moving increasingly towards an information society, where knowledge and learning are the new currency of power. This book seeks to challenge this axiom by looking in more detail at the subtle relationships between knowledge and social development. The editors are at pains to differentiate the process of knowledge creation from the simple accumulation of knowledge. The original contributions within this book are aimed at capturing new socio-economic trends and finding policy strategies promoting the learning society in Europe through joint efforts and integrated actions on innovation, competence building and social cohesion.
