Notes
  • This paper reflects on the relevance of “systems-theoretic” approaches to the interdependent policy issues bearing on the dynamics of science, technology and innovation in their relationship to economic growth. Considering the approach that characterizes much of the current economics literature’s treatment of technology and growth policies, we pose the critical question: what kind of systems paradigm is likely to prove particularly fruitful in that particular problem-domain? Evolutionary, neo-Schumpeterian, and complex system dynamics approaches are conceptually attractive, and we examine their respective virtues while also acknowledging their more serious problematic features. The latter become visible quickly when one tries to connect systems-relevant research with practical policy-making in this field. Not content to have simply identified a number of the significant obstructions encountered in the path toward that goal, the paper also suggests some potentially feasible ways forward.
