The financial crisis and technology innovation

“What will be the long-term impact of the crisis on technological innovation?” Joshua Gans examines that question in the new Spring 2009 issue of MIT Sloan Management Review.

"While governments deliberate responses to the financial crisis of 2008 and its aftermath, one important question should not be overlooked: What will be the long-term impact of the crisis on technological innovation?" So writes economist Joshua Gans in the new Spring 2009 issue of MIT Sloan Management Review.

In particular, Gans raises concerns about how the downturn will effect technology start-ups that collaborate with larger companies. You can read Gans' article and others in MIT Sloan Management Review's Downturn Manifesto special report.
