Reviews

'It is no coincidence that Dan Spulber has written this book on the economic contributions of the innovative entrepreneur's initiative and creativity, as it has been Spulber's own initiative and creativity that has been largely responsible for developing an economic theory of the innovative entrepreneur.' Robert J. Strom, PhD, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
'Having already established himself as one of the leading economic theorists of entrepreneurship of all time, Dan Spulber applies his analytical powers to the theory of innovative entrepreneurship, the most important kind for societies in the long run. This book will become a classic.' Robert Litan, Director of Research, Bloomberg Government
'A brilliant and prolific scholar of managerial economics, Daniel Spulber asks why people with new technologies sometimes start their own firms. They could develop the technology within existing firms, but choose to bring it to a new firm instead. The puzzle is not easy to solve but Spulber nicely does - by identifying the costs that incumbent firms would incur to readjust their focus, and the problems that inhere in the market for new technologies. This is a study that will profoundly change the way that we understand the role that new firms play in promoting innovation.' J. Mark Ramseyer, Harvard Law School
'Readers with a good grounding in mathematics and advanced microeconomic theory should find Spulber's formal analytical framework and synthesis helpful and informative.' Choice
