We do two things in this paper. First, we put forward some elements of a microeconomic theory of technological evolution. This involves adding nascent (essentially undiscovered) technologies to the existing technologies of neoclassical production theory, and, more importantly, expanding the notion of the production plan to include the recipe---the complete description of the underlying engineering process. Second, we use the recipes approach in constructing a simple microeconomic model of shop… Expand
