About the book

The object of the book's analysis is Economics innovation: Research and Development (R&D) activity capable of at the same time leading to real and lasting development, and a less costly sacrifice in terms of efficiency.

The need to fully understand the importance and centrality of this topic, especially in more recent times, has prompted more and more authors to investigate the subject that can now boast a study center of the most prolific.

The present book therefore proposes to discuss an overview of the literature inherent to the issue, providing mention of the main related themes, and their acceptance by the scholars of the sector, and then provide a further point of view.

In the first place, the accent is placed on the intrinsic characteristics of economics innovation, those particular meanings that make it not only a necessity, but above all an opportunity not to be neglected, for development that it is sustainable and profitable for all parties involved.

Next, we analyze the concept and definition of that innovation, as it has been provided to us by various authors, with the appropriate distinctions that from it derive, and with the analysis of the relevant literature. The main points of investigation that have emerged on the subject are addressed: the analysis of the determinants of economics innovations, the economic implications resulting from innovation process, innovation product and through (R&D) in general, and the role and value of an ad hoc industrial policy.
