This collection reprints 34 articles originally published in Applied Economics, Research Policy, Economics of Innovation and New Technology, American Economic Review, and other journals as far back as 1954. The articles discuss the standards setting process, the economic implications of having standards, the relationship between infrastructure technology standards and innovation, and public involvement in standards development. Seven case studies demonstrate the technical development of local area networks, automatic teller machines, wireless communication technologies, quality specifications, and internet standards.
