Abstract

This work provides the reader with a series of sectoral and comparative insights into the new world of national competitiveness, with particular reference to the US and Japan. It also provides a synthesis of emerging fields around knowledge and evolutionary thought. The author demonstrates the role of cultural factors in co-evolutionary processes, and investigates why different countries consistently perform very differently from one sector to another in the international market for technologies. The book offers an integrated framework for understanding how different national learning patterns affect innovation, and a perspective on the dynamic interaction and co-evolution of culture, technology, institutions and governance.
