Techno-economic paradigm shifts are at the core of general, innovation-based theory of economic and societal development as conceived by Carlota Perez. Her book on the subject, Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital, is a seminal enunciation of the theory, and has had immense influence on business strategy, national and international development programmes, and academic research on the subject.
Techno-Economic Paradigms presents a series of essays by the leading academics in the field discussing the theory of techno-economic paradigm shifts, and its role in explaining processes of innovation and development. This festschrift honours Carlota Perez.
