This chapter looks at the comparative systems approach to understanding the way in which different institutional regimes affect the governance of technological development. It focuses on four institutional constraints: market failure, government failure, corporate failure, and network failure. Each has the potential to impede or disconnect the linkage between the production of technology and the use or adoption of technology.

Keywords:   comparative systems approach, institutional regimes, technological development, market failure, government failure, corporate failure, network failure, technology
