Merge[edit]

Regarding merging "Tech Change as a Social Process" with this article, that would be OK I guess, but I was thinking of adding more to the TCSP article, which may make it too long for a merger. I think what is really needed here is more on the economics of technological change. Johnfos 10:37, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

I would favor the merging. --Loremaster 14:53, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
OK, that's fine. I will hold off on additions to TCSP and it can be merged. Johnfos 23:44, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
I've done the merge. Can please you work on citing Rogers as source but using the 4th edition rather than than the 3rd? Please follow Wikipedia:Citing sources guidelines. --Loremaster 12:05, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
I'm not sure why you are emphasising the fourth edition, as there is a fifth out now. I don't have a copy and so don't plan to make any more contributions to the area of Technological change and Diffusion of innovations. Johnfos 23:19, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
I wasn't aware that there was a 5th edition out now. Since there is, let's emphasize this edition rather than the 3rd or 4th since people will have a tendency to check out the latest version rather than the earliest. --Loremaster 23:29, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Dr. Rodriguez-Lopez's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Rodriguez-Lopez has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


For Wikipedia readers, this article launches very technical concepts from the very beginning. The first section, called "Modeling technological change", should be sited in an ulterior position of the article. Instead, section labeled as "Economics" should be placed before, as it provides a definition of "neutral" technological change, while distinguishing between the concepts proposed by Hicks, Harrod and Solow.

Having defined "neutral" technological change, I would expand this article through the idea of "investment-specific" technological change (or ISTC), which refers to the change in the quality of some (capital) inputs. This is specially important for capital goods such as those of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT, hardware, software, etc.). I note there is a link to this concept at:
