About this book

Introduction

This book analyses technological innovation from three related standpoints. The first section examines the management processes involved in the generation of innovations, the underlying theories and their limitations. The second section examines the relationship between innovation, technical change, and economic theory. Issues covered include diffusion, induced innovation, economic growth, trade theory, and employment consequences. The third section examines the non-market influences on technical change, both governmental and policy. The book will be of interest to researchers, advanced undergraduates and post-graduates, managers and policy-makers.
