Technological learning in the Silicon Valleys of Latin America

Luciano Ciravegna

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This study contributes to the understanding of the effects of FDI by illustrating that social networks affect technological learning in the Costa Rican ICT cluster in ways that the literature on technological capabilities failed to capture. It is based on extensive qualitative evidence collected by the author between 2004 and 2009.
