Davis, Haltiwanger and Schuh () (henceforth DHS) offered the clearest peek into this process by documenting and characterizing the large magnitude of job flows within US manufacturing. They defined job creation (destruction) as the positive (negative) net. This is a (very long) summary of "Prophet of Innovation. Joseph Schumpeter and Creative Destruction" by Thomas McCraw.

Ironically, for a concept derived from Marxist thought, free-market economists have seen creative destruction as a necessary and inevitable process of economic development and generally oppose government attempts to hold back this process of decline and renewal. Joseph A. Schumpeter’s theory of economic development analyzes how growth and cycle dynamics intertwine. The process of creative destruction plays an essential role in those dynamics: embodying.
