This paper explores the effects of the accumulation of savings on the creative reaction of firms, the search for technological congruence and the direction of technological change with a Schumpeterian model of endogenous growth. The model shows how the accumulation of wealth accounts for the reduction of the relative user cost of capital and activates, with proper levels of knowledge governance, the creative reaction of firms, search for higher levels of technological congruence and the introduction of directed technological change with higher levels of capital intensity. The dynamics of accumulation of wealth and induced technological change accounts the self-sustained increase of total factor productivity. © 2015 Springer Science+Business Media New York

Quatraro F. Co-evolutionary patterns in regional knowledge bases and economic structure: evidence from European regions, Regional Studies. This paper analyses the co-evolutionary patterns of structural change in knowledge and economics. The former is made operational through an analysis of co-occurrences of technological classes in patent documents in order to derive indicators of coherence, variety and cognitive distance. The latter is made operational in a synthetic way by implementing shift–share analysis which decomposes labour productivity growth into effects caused by changes in the allocation of employment, those ascribed to intra-sector productivity growth, and those caused by interaction of these two components. The results of the analysis conducted on a sample of 227 European regions show that increasing variety is associated with the reallocation of the workforce across sectors whereas within-sector productivity is associated with high levels of both coherence and cognitive distance of the regional knowledge base. © 2014 Regional Studies Association.
