This volume provides a collection of cross-country analysis of invation, showing that the effects of invation upon firms vary from one country to ather. Incumbents perish in one country, while they thrive in the same industry in ather country. Startups thrive in response to new techlogical breakthroughs in one country and struggle in ather country. Drawing upon studies of semiconductors, disk drives and biotechlogy, and examining institutions such as patent systems and venture capital, this volume takes issue with predictions of convergence, and convincingly demonstrates the multiple paths that techlogies and invations can follow.
