Description: 15.943 and 15.944 can be taken independently, but are designed to be taken together. 15.944 introduces doctoral students to the extensive literature in the strategic and economic analysis of technology intensive industries. While it includes a significant proportion of the material that would be typically included in a subject on the economics of technological change, it differs by being significantly more focused on the question of how technological change and innovation both creates and is a response to heterogeneity among firms, a concern shared across the subjects in the sequence. Restricted to doctoral students.
