The Engines of the Creative Response
This book elaborates, implements, applies and tests the theoretical framework presented in Antonelli, C. (2017), Endogenous Innovation: The Economics of an Emergent System, Cheltenham, UK and Northampton, MA: Edward Elgar Publishing. For this purpose it uses and recombines material drawn from the following publications: Chapter 2: Antonelli, C. and Ferraris, G.L. (2011), ‘Innovation as an emerging system property: An agent based model’, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, 14 (2); Chapter 3: Antonelli, C. and Ferraris, G. (2017), ‘The Marshallian and Schumpeterian microfoundations of evolutionary complexity: An agent based simulation model’, in A. Pyka and U. Cantner (eds), Foundations of Economic Change: A Schumpeterian View on Behaviour, Interaction and Aggregate Outcomes, Berlin, Heidelberg and New York: Springer, pp. 461–500; Chapter 4: Antonelli, C. and Colombelli, A. (2015), ‘External and internal knowledge in the knowledge generation function’, Industry and Innovation, 22, 273–98; Chapter 5: Antonelli, C. and Fassio, C. (2016), ‘The role of external knowledge(s) in the introduction of product and process innovations’, R&D Management, 46, 979–91; Chapter 6: Antonelli, C. and Colombelli, A. (2015), ‘The knowledge cost function’, International Journal of Production Economics, 168, 290–302; Chapter 7: Antonelli, C. and Gehringer, A.
