Abstract

Innovation remains high on the corporate agenda. In this 1992 article, Paul Geroski and Steve Machin argue that innovating firms are both more profitable and grow faster than non‐innovators. But the major difference in performance turns out to be cyclical: innovators' profits and growth are much less cyclically sensitive than non‐innovators.
