Learning, Capability Building and Innovation for Development Hardback

Edited by Gabriela Dutrenit, Keun Lee, Richard Nelson, Alexandre Vera-Cruz, Luc Soete

Part of the EADI Global Development Series series


Today, a large number of scholars studying development understand this process as involving learning and capability building.

Capability building is an active, not a passive, process.

It requires a purposeful effort from the learner's side, with support and commitment on allocation of time and resources toward learning activities.

This process implies the possibility of failure as well as success, as we also learn from failures.

A global cast of academics and policy makers examines economic development as a process of learning and technological accumulation, showing how economic development is a process involving creative destruction.

While markets and market competition play major roles in structuring the development process, non-market institutions and government policies matter.
