The economics of technology transfer

edited by Sanjaya Lall

"The Economics of Technology Transfer" presents a selection of the most important articles in the field, many of which are not easily accessible. The volume pays particular attention to issues facing developing countries in the context of rapid technical change, globalization of production and the international spread of innovation itself. Part 1 of this book focuses on theory and concepts. Part 2, which examines multinationals, deals with the main engines of technology development and transfer. Part 3 discusses developing countries, pointing to the possible conflict between internalized technology transfer (via multinational enterprises) and the needs of domestic technological capability building. The remaining parts include papers on technology transfer processes and issues in selected countries of Latin America, East Asia, the transition economies and the mature industrial economies.
