    We examine the extent to which financial market development impacts the diffusion of 16 major technologies, looking across 17 countries, from to We find that greater depth in financial markets leads to faster technology diffusion for more capital-intensive technologies, but only in periods closer to the invention of the technology. diffusion that the book is mainly concerned. It deals with the description of diffusion processes in terms of solutions of the differential equation for diffusion. Little mention is made of the alternative, but less well developed, description in terms of what is commonly called 'the random walk', nor are.

    Holding technology diffusion constant, however, we find modest improvements in outcomes associated with greater factor inputs, with a preferred estimate of between $94, and $, per life-year. Chandra et al. () found similar variation in productivity across firms in non-health industries as in hospitals, suggesting that the. Abstract: The paper focuses on the impact of R&D expenditure on labor productivity using interna-tional patent applications as a technology diffusion indicator. Considering the relationship between research and productivity, the pattern of international patenting reflects the channel between the source and the destination of transferred technology.

    We set out recently to investigate what drives, and holds back, the diffusion of technology-enabled business practices, using a mix of academic literature, studies from multinational organizations such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the World Economic Forum, and in-depth interviews with business leaders and other experts. "This book is a significant contribution to scholarly study in Social Informatics unique in being the largest collection of research papers on CMs to date. it shows that CMs greatly influence how people think about computing technologies and therefore help shape the technology adoption decisions of managers and users in organizations, and more broadly within society.".

The literature on new technology diffusion is vast, and it spills over many conventional disciplinary boundaries. This paper surveys the literature by focusing on alternative explanations of the dominant stylized fact: that the usage of new technologies over time typically follows an S-curve.

A brief review of applications of diffusion models show (in addition to what is included in Appendix A) that the applications are broadly in three types: (1) study of general spread of new technology or innovation (2) examine pricing as a diffusion variable and (3) forecasting purposes – demand, etc.

of my diffusion book, during the s, an explosion occurred in the number of diffusion investigations that were conducted in the devel-oping nations of Latin America, Africa, and Asia. It was realized that the classical diffusion model could be usefully applied to the process of socioeconomic development.

In fact, the diffusion approach was a. Diffusion of innovations is a theory that seeks to explain how, why, and at what rate new ideas and technology spread. Everett Rogers, a professor of communication studies, popularized the theory in his book Diffusion of Innovations; the book was first published inand is now in its fifth edition ().

Rogers argues that diffusion is the process by which an innovation is communicated. Rogers, a pioneer in classic diffusion theory, known for his book, Diffusion of Innovation, published indefines diffusion as a process in which an idea or innovation is communicated via a social network.

Adoption or acceptance of an idea or process. • Theoretical models of technology diffusion have attracted increasing attention in recent years; see Stoneman () and David () for overviews. Although the specific predictions depend upon the assumptions and focus of each model, a common set of factors that are likely to influence the diffusion process tends to emerge.Cultural diffusion of technology is a constant theme in the history of the world.

As different cultures meet, through trade or conquest, they almost automatically are interested in sharing their.The analog for diffusion of medical technology is that a technology will expand its use until it has found its way into medical applications that are cost ineffective. This presents a challenge for developers, utilizers, purchasers, and regulators of new technology: to permit adoption of cost-effective new technologies without allowing them to.
