About the Authors
  • New trade theory, new growth theory and the developing literature on national systems of innovation have combined to produce an explosion of interest around issues of trade, growth and technical change. A similar focus has dominated public policy debates. This book, first published in 1998, represents a major contribution to such debates, focusing as it does on the interconnections between technology, on the one hand, and economic growth and international trade on the other. It identifies and explains the links between these various processes, and explores the effects of technical change on both growth and trade. This book has clear policy relevance: market forces alone are seen to be far from adequate for the efficient generation, transfer and diffusion of innovation, while public policy is identified as playing a key role for a truly innovative economy.

    • Trade, growth and technical changes are fast-developing and highly topical areas of research
    • Strong interdisciplinary flavour; should have wide appeal
    • Contributors are leading figures in the field
