Product description

How does technology advance? How can we best assimilate innovation? These questions and others are considered by experts on the theories and applications of technological innovations. Considering subjects as diverse as the diffusion of new technologies and their industrial applications, governmental policies, and manifestations of innovation in our institutions, history, and environment, our contributors map milestones in research and speculate about the roads ahead. Wasteful, inefficient, and frequently wrongheaded, the process of technological changes is here revealed as a describable, scientific force. Two volumes, available separately and as a set, include expert articles that consider the best ways to establish optimal incentives in technological progress. Science and innovation, both their theories and applications, are examined at the intersections of the marketplace, policy, and social welfare. Economists are only part of an audience that includes attorneys, educators, and anyone involved in new technologies.

Review quote

For too long the policy importance of innovation has taken a back seat to short-term stimulus initiatives. Hall and Rosenberg have assembled a scholarly collection of papers that provide a timely guide for rediscovering the role of innovation in economic growth. Albert N. Link, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
