This book addresses the foundations of economic growth at the firm level, combining both theoretical and econometric contributions by established scholars. Challenging contributions revisit Marshall's view on the management of innovation, investigate the decision of firms to venture into entrepreneurship and clarify some misunderstanding about Schumpeter's ideas. The book goes on to shed light on the classical specialisation-flexibility trade-off and provides a vision on the role of the knowledge-based economy and firm networks in technology development. Firm survival and performance, price-cost margins and the determinants of research intensity are also investigated econometrically. Innovation, Economic Growth and the Firm will be of great relevance to students and academics involved in research projects that address issues of firm growth, behaviour and performance. It will also appeal to practitioners seeking tangible results concerning the relationship between key economic variables at the firm level, and to policymakers who need to be aware of the impact that changes in the organization of industries and markets may have on the performance of firms.

Edited by Jean-Luc Gaffard, University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, Institut Universitaire de France and Observatoire Francais des Conjonctures Economiques, France and Evens Salies, Observatoire Francais des Conjonctures Economiques, FranceReview:
`Gaffard and Salies have brought together an outstanding collection of papers that connects two fields of research usually only considered in isolation: the entrepreneurial restructuring of firms and markets and the growth process of the firm. Recognizing the interaction between the two is crucial for understanding how economic progress comes about today. What leading scholars from each of the fields have to say in this book on the connection makes for the most stimulating and illuminating reading with great relevance for policy making in Europe and America.' -- Ulrich Witt, Max Planck Institute of Economics and University of Jena, Germany
