Murmann presents 'Best Paper'
26, Kellogg Assistant Professor J. Peter Murmann presented
material to faculty and others at the school from Knowledge
and Competitive Advantage: The Coevolution of Firms, Technology,
and National Institutions, which earned him the 2004
Reiter Best Paper Award from the Kellogg School.
The book tracks
the synthetic dye industry from 1857 to 1914 in Germany, England
and the United States to show how the coevolution of firms,
technology and government in each country affected the political
economy into the 20th century. Murmann said he will continue
tracking the industry from World War I into the 21st century
to show how world trading patterns have changed.
