Industry Reviews

"'With respect to standards, the single most important contemporary question for industry, standards bodies, policymakers and academics is how to demonstrate empirically the impacts that standards have on products and markets. This book goes a very long way to establishing a basis for assessing these impacts systematically at both micro and macro levels. The book is grounded in economics, but its general approach, arguments, methods and conclusions are accessible enough to inform a variety of scholarly and practical perspectives.' - Richard Hawkins, Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), The Netherlands 'The economics of standardisation has grown into a very important area of industrial economics. Knut Blind's book will serve as a useful review of the research that has already been done and as a collection of his own empirical work in the field. The latter is probably the best contribution so far to the empirical analysis of standardisation and its economic effects. It will be valuable reading to almost anyone working in this area.' - G.M. Peter Swann, University of Manchester, UK"
