A comparison of viewpoint both the Neo-Classic group and Marxists on this paper is a difference with other references. That this paper using a literature review in which materials were from many sources like Scopus, Science Direct, Sage Pub, etc. The element of dynamic process and now we called by innovation is the Schumpeter theory.
