Innovation: Technical, economic and institutional aspects

Edited by: Albert E. Steenge, Aloys Prinz, Jorg Schmidt

Institutional and technological innovations are promoters of economic growth and development. Based on this general hypothesis, researchers of the School of Business, Public Administration and Technology of the University of Twente and the Institute of Public Economics of the University of Muenster presented papers at a seminar at Rothenberge, published in this volume. The central topics are: Institutional reforms to regulate markets, especially with respect to environmental problems; impulses to vitalize old industrial regions; innovations in the system of national accounts; innovation and cartelization of markets; the use of the internet for public choice and administrative accountability and an innovative voucher scheme for social policy.
