Innovation and Diffusion - The Implications of an Integrated Approach
In the literature on the Economics of Technological Change it has become almost a convention to analyse the generation of new technology (Research and Development, or invention and innovation, or patenting behaviour) and the diffusion of new technology, as separate components in an overall process. It is the purpose of this paper to argue that the generation and use of new technology are inextricably linked and that separate analysis should ne considered at best as yielding only part of the answers to any problems in the economics of technological change.
