Resource description

This paper makes the point that Thorstein Veblen should be considered one of the importantprecursors of the emerging competence-based approach to the firm. Thus, the emphasis in thisliterature on firms as path-dependent entities characterised by their heterogeneous knowledgebases,operating under conditions of genuine uncertainty, and existing because they provide moraland cognitive communities that foster the development of productive competencies, can all betraced to key themes in Veblen’s work.
