From Our Editors

The integration of national economies in a global economic system has become a central feature of contemporary political, social, economic and cultural life. However, the mechanisms of such integration are not well understood. In Innovation Systems in a Global Context, leading economic scholars in the area of evolutionary economics focus on North America to clarify the structure of innovation systems and discuss the role played by technology in fostering economic growth and international integration.
