At the end of the Cold War, the global economic system encountered a new phenomenon in the field of knowledge creation and technological innovation - the birth of mad technologies. This book analyses major changes in the national innovation systems (NIS) due to the introduction of mad technologies in East Asia. The authors find that mad technologies were the cause of stock market crashes and economic uncertainties in the region and conclude that successful corporations use various measures to neutralize mad technologies and/or incorporate them into the NIS.
