Prof. Murmann presents 'Best Paper'

On Jan. 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.
