This paper provides the theoretical guide and introduction to a selected list of papers evaluating the drivers of technological catch-up experiences from Asia. It departs from neoclassical preoccupation with markets as the sole or dominant institution of economic allocation by arguing that the evidence supports the evolutionary logic of macro, meso and micro interactions between several institutions, depending on the actors involved, structural location and taxonomic and trajectory elements of technical change.
