Description

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.

'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
