This paper sets out some microfoundations for Schumpeter’ s theory of innovation-driven business cycles. A model is developed to represent these cycles, which incorporates two of the three main elements of Schumpeter's analysis: innovation and profit-seeking. The third element emphasized by Schumpeter, the role of credit, is taken as an exogenous factor.
