First Edition, British issue, printed from the American sheets ("Oxford" stamped in gilt at heel of spine). xv, 1 leaf, 332 pp; 29 + 15 + 5 tables; 25 + 2 figs. Original cloth. Very Good+, in very good dust jacket (price-clipped). ". economists have become more and more confident of their ability to deal with technological events in economic terms. This growing confidence was capped by the publication of a major book by Jacob Schmookler in 1966, called Invention and Economic Growth (Cambridge: Harvard University Press). Schmookler argued, quite persuasively, not only that one could explain the diffusion of existing inventions in economic terms - a la Griliches - but that one could even explain the pattern of inventive activity itself. . Schmookler's book is obviously very appealing to the economist because it argues that inventive activity is an essentially economic phenomenon, and that it can be adequately understood in terms of the familiar analytical apparatus of the economist. . Schmookler's analysis is so rich and so suggestive that it has to be the starting point for all future attempts to deal with the economics of inventive activity and its relationship to economic growth. . The empirical core of Schmookler's book is an attempt to demonstrate, through the study of several American industries, that demand-side considerations are the major determinant of variations in the allocation of inventive effort to specific industries" (Nathan Rosenberg: Science, Invention and Economic Growth, The Economic Journal Volume 84, Issue 333, Mar. 1974, 90-108).
