Microdynamics of Technological Change Summary

Microdynamics of Technological Change by Cristiano Antonelli (University of Turin, Italy)

This volume presents a comprehensive assessment of the economic effects of the emerging information and communication technologies associated with a knowledge-based economy, and looks at how knowledge is increasingly treated as a product in its own right.
An original framework is developed to comprehend these fundamental shifts, based on three bodies of knowledge:
* the economics of path dependence and of historical time as they are elaborated in the economics of new technologies
* economic topology based on the methodology of network analysis
* the new economics of knowledge and the concept of localized technological change
This book provides a unified analytical framework for the study of the transition of advanced economic systems towards a knowledge-based economy.

Microdynamics of Technological Change Reviews

'It represents a rare (and much needed) attempt of treating with analytical rigour and theoretical depth the multidimensional nature of technological change and its micro-macro economic domains ... ' - Rinaldo Evangelista, Technovation
