Economists examine the genesis of technological change and the ways we commercialize and diffuse it. The economics of property rights and patents, in addition to industry applications, are also surveyed through literature reviews and predictions about fruitful research directions.
- Two volumes, available as a set or sold separately
Expert articles consider the best ways to establish optimal incentives in technological progress
Science and innovation, both their theories and applications, are examined at the intersections of the marketplace, policy, and social welfare
Economists are only part of an audience that includes attorneys, educators, and anyone involved in new technologies
For too long the policy importance of innovation has taken a back seat to short-term stimulus initiatives. Hall and Rosenberg have assembled a scholarly collection of papers that provide a timely guide for rediscovering the role of innovation in economic growth.
