Technological Diffusion : The Viewpoint of Economic Theory
AbstractTechnological diffusion is the process by which innovations (be they new products, new processes or new management methods) spread within and across economies. Some understanding of the process of technological diffusion is essential if we are to gain any insight into the processes of economic growth and development, for, whatever the emphasis has been in the past in research and public policy, it is the application of innovations (diffusion) rather than the generation of innovations (invention or R & D) that leads to the realisation of benefits from technological advance
