Knowledge Accumulation and Industry Evolution: Pharma-Biotech

Mazzucato, M. and G. Dosi (Eds. 2006) “Knowledge Accumulation and Industry Evolution: Pharma-Biotech”, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge UK ISBN 0-521-85822-4 446 pages

Written by internationally acclaimed experts in the economics of innovation, this volume examines how the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sector is affected by the dynamics of innovation, institutions, and public policy. It contributes both theoretically and empirically to the increasingly influential Schumpetarian framework in industrial economics, which places innovation at the centre of the analysis of competition. Both quantitative and qualitative studies are included, and this varied perspective adds to the richness of the volume’s insights. The contributors explore different ideas regarding the historical evolution of technology in the sector, and how firms and industry structure have co-evolved with innovation dynamics. Important policy questions are considered regarding the future of innovation in this sector and its impact on the economy.
