The Free-Market Innovation Machine:
Analyzing the Growth Miracle of Capitalism
William J. Baumol

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"You cannot fault Baumol for being unambitious. In this fine volume he challenges readers to rethink entirely the conventional wisdom concerning the nature and benefits of the capitalist (or free market) system. . . . Readable, challenging, stimulating."--Choice

"An important new book."--David Crane, Toronto Star

"Professor Baumol is a giant in the field of economics. . . . This book displays both his prodigious intellect and the sweep of his scholarship. . . . [T]his is an important book."--Ashish Arora, Journal of Technology Transfer

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"A good book and a valuable book by an author whose experience, wisdom, and analytical ability make his thoughts automatically important."--Robert M. Solow, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1987 Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences

"Well written and well organized, this book provides an overriding vision of the economic process, in particular, the strange sense in which competition coexists with what might be termed a cooperative process of learning. It is likely to be an important stimulus to research."--Kenneth J. Arrow, Stanford University, 1972 Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences
