Public policy, governance and innovation: entrepreneurial states in East Asian economic development
by Alexander Ebner
International Journal of Technology and Globalisation (IJTG), Vol. 3, No. 1, 2007

Abstract: The analytical framework presented in this paper addresses the transitory character of the East Asian developmental states. It argues that the specific governance pattern of an entrepreneurial state combines the exercise of governmental entrepreneurship with distinct institutional, structural and spatial dimensions in coping with evolving techno-economic paradigms. The notion of the entrepreneurial state thus highlights the role of the state in shaping and coordinating national innovation systems. In conclusion, the transition to the institutional set-up of entrepreneurial states constitutes the major developmental challenge for the East Asian economies.
