Pecuniary externalities are crucial in shaping the strategies to value the distinctive competences and the economic success of innovative firms. The analysis of conditions for localized knowledge appropriation and exploitation makes it possible to identify idiosyncratic production factors.

Recent advances in the economics of knowledge enable important progress to be made in understanding the key role of pecuniary externalities in knowledge exploitation.
