(p.52) 3 Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Competence
Learning and Innovation in Organizations and Economies

Bart Nooteboom

Oxford University Press

Economics literature has mostly treated learning only in a very limited sense of increasing efficiency on the basis of experience or obtaining information from others. Most mainstream economics is unfit to deal with the issue of learning in the sense of innovation and discovery. More useful are non-mainstream or non-standard branches of economics: Austrian/Schumpeterian economics, the resource-competence view of firms, evolutionary economics, and institutional economics. This chapter focuses on the first two.

Keywords:   organizational learning, mainstream economics, Austrian economics, Schumpeterian economics, resource-competence view, knowledge
