Capturing the Direct and the Serendipitous Spillovers: The Case of Sweden’s Military Aircraft Industry

  • Gunnar Eliasson
Part of the Economics of Science, Technology and Innovation book series (ESTI, volume 34)


Competence bloc theory categorizes factors that make economies more or less efficient in identifying, selecting, and commercializing the innovative industrial technologies that move economic growth. Competence bloc theory therefore is central for understanding the role of spillovers in the macroeconomy. The economics of commercializing is about minimizing the costs of two types of business mistakes.
