Knowledge as growth

  • David B. AudretschEmail author


The purpose of this paper is to reflect and articulate the key scholarly contributions made by Cristiano Antonelli in his pathbreaking book, The Knowledge Growth Regime: A Schumpeterian Approach and why it is so important, not only to scholars of innovation and Schumpeterian economics, but also to the entirety of economic thinking. This paper highlights how this important new book breaks new and important ground paving the way for a new paradigm in economics, where knowledge takes the center stage.
