520 |a In this book Faïz Gallouj propounds a theoretical framework which describes and evaluates the main approaches to analysing and understanding innovation in services.

Taking both an evolutionary and conventionalist stance, he demonstrates that services, and more importantly innovations in services, can be regarded as the new wealth of nations
