Differences in technology between countries and the effect of this on trade performance have important consequences for the growth and development of countries. This book analyses the role of innovation in influencing the trade performance of developed countries. It presents an up-to-date systematic empirical evaluation of the role of technology in a group of key industrialized economies and integrates differences in technology into the debate about European Union and country convergence in general. The book will be welcomed by scholars and students of industrial economics, the economics of technology change and international trade.

`It is a well-written contribution on an important and interesting issue that may be of interest to both scholars and a wider audience.' -- Per Botolf Maurseth, The Economic Journal `. . . suitable for readers interested in getting an overview over the literature of trade and innovation or for those looking for a good empirical test of the technological gap model in its static formulation.' -- Katja Gerling and Hubert Strauss, Review of World Economics `The book is a useful contribution to the growing volume of literature challenging neoclassical premises of economic theory which is largely dominating the teaching and practice of economics. . . . The empirical foundation of the broad hypothesis is the strength of the book.' -- Pradosh Nath, Journal of Scientific and Industrial Research `. . . this is a very good book which is well written, perceptive, demonstrates a good knowledge of the working literature and provides some sound empirical studies. It will appeal to researchers on this and related fields and serve as a supplementary text on some postgraduate courses.' -- John Cantwell, Rutgers University, US
