520    The process of firms' growth - in terms of productivity or
       employment - is a major concern of policy makers. In this 
       context, innovations are considered to play a crucial role
       in stimulating firms' performance. This book investigates 
       this general hypothesis by looking at three topics: 1. 
       Does innovation lead to an increase in employment growth? 
       2. Does innovation boost labour productivity? 3. Does 
       innovation in one period improve innovation performance in
       subsequent periods? Based on a comprehensive innovation 
       panel dataset for German firms, this book presents 
       detailed results for each question, in particular by 
       separating the effects induced by new products from those 
       induced by the introduction of new production 
       technologies. From a theoretical point of view, amongst 
       others, a new multi-product model has been developed to 
       study employment effects.
