No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book contains a concise critical survey of economic theories of the firm leading into an exposition of how real firms function in the real world when knowledge cannot be complete or unambiguous. This is related to a number of computer and communications firms in Japan and the West, and to the future of Japanese technological innovation in an increasingly globalized world.
