The first book to chart the development of the field of evolutionary economics, this book provides an integrated generic framework to define the rules of an economic system; how they are coordinated and the causes and consequences of their change.

Packed with pedagogical features including essay and tutorial questions, case studies and an extensive bibliography, this book:

  • proposes a new analytic framework for the study of the nature and causes of long run economic growth and development in market systems

  • analyzes the foundations of the neoclassical tradition, before developing a thesis through micro, meso and macro domains drawing conclusions as to what can be learned from the point of view of policy analysis

  • focuses on an open-systems analytical framework and successfully formulates and refines the analytical foundations of a new general theory of economic evolution.

This volume is essential reading for scholars and students of economic evolution and as well as for anyone who seeks to better understand the complex evolutionary nature of the structure and dynamics of the knowledge-based economy in today's society.
