This paper gives a brief historical account of the discussion on innovations clustering, reviewing Kuznet's criticism on Schumpeter's cluster-of-innovation hypothesis. Thereafter engages into econometric analyses of time series of major innovations that were produced by various authors. We conclude that much is to be said in favour of a rehabilitation of Schumpeter's (1939) cluster-of-innovation hypothesis.
