About this product
- DescriptionThe extent to which firms can react creatively to rather than adjust passively against new techniques and practices is dependent on their command of techlogical kwledge and relative competence. This book explores the characteristics of the path dependent dynamics of localized techlogical change, demonstrating how the ecomics of complexity can inform our understanding of the ecomics of invation and vice versa. The book is structured in three parts: part one focuses on the ingredients of the ecomics of localized techlogical change, focusing on the legacies of the key ecomists and a critical assessment. Part two explores the governance of the generation, dissemination, use and exploitation of localized techlogical kwledge. Part three elaborates on the basic dynamic mechanisms of localized techlogical change, combining theory with specific empirical models. The final perspectives articulate the relations between the ecomics of localized techlogical change, the ecomics of path dependence and the challenge of the emerging ecomics of complexity.
