This volume of the Annals is focused on several critical issues, such as: What is the link between science and technology and economic development? How can policy help to force that link? What are the important components of successful policy initiatives? And, in pluralistic political systems, how can those initiatives be created and sustained over time? None of these questions knows geographic boundaries. The recognition that the S&T-economic prosperity link is critical is shared both in government corridors and in corporate boardrooms in Boston and Bangalore, in Seoul and Sao Paolo, and even in Lagos and Llongwe. Hence, the material in this volume includes case studies from around the world.
