Abstract

Introduction:

In this case study we will briefly review economic history since the industrial revolution, that is, the first 300 years of industrialization. In proposing such a broad topic as a case study, Bet.z [I) invokes the existence of Long Waves in order to give some structure to the basic argument that successive episodes of technological innovation have given rise to a quasi-periodic series of economic expansions and contractions. We will critically examine the basis for believing that such Kondratyev' waves actually exist, and discuss their explanation in terms of the emergence of disruptive technologies.
