Abstract

This research looks at a number of cultural resources, material and ideological, inventors use to produce, justify and market inventions. While the sample is small, and limited to one particular kind of inventors, the study does raise some questions about how inventors have been portrayed in the literature. It also raises some issues about the kinds of policies and institutions public money is spent on in the US today, to encourage “to market” innovation and knowledge transfer.
