Technological Capability, Innovation, and Productivity in Least-Developed and Developing Countries

Chapter 2.7 in The Innovation for Development Report 2010–2011, 2011, pp 143-171 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract After decades of rigorous theoretical and empirical research, there is now consensus that technological progress is the engine of sustainable economic growth and development. No country has achieved economic development without investing in some form of technological knowledge and innovation. However, as apparent as this link has become, it remains unclear how technological progress will be achieved in least-developed and developing countries (LDDCs) and how it will affect economic growth and development.
