Neo-Schumpeterians and Economic Theory

  • Arnold Heertje
Part of the Recent Economic Thought book series (RETH, volume 36)


This chapter deals with the contribution of the neo-Schumpeterians to economic theory. In fact, I shall present a cost-benefit analysis of the neo-Schumpeterian challenge to neoclassical economics. As the neo-Schumpeterians derive their inspiration from the works of J. A. Schumpeter, it seems appropriate and quite natural to start with a few observations on Schumpeter.
