The Rigidities and Potential of a National Innovation System
This book deals with technological change. We have discussed it from the perspective of a small (and, in the European perspective, a rather peripheral) country, Finland. The Finnish conditions clearly differ from those of larger and more central countries with longer industrial traditions. On the other hand, many basic aspects of technological progress are similar everywhere and independent of country size.
