This chapter examines the concept of innovation. The assumption of calculative decision-making makes prediction and the attainment of equilibrium possible, but leaves no analytical room for innovation. It is argued that innovation gives politicians a choice of electoral strategies, that innovation is uncertain, and that beliefs about innovation are themselves constructed and contested.

Keywords:   innovation, political centre, political parties, equilibrium, rhetoric
