Overview

After a decade or more of privatisation and deregulation there is a growing consensus that government can have a positive role in promoting industrial development. This book explores a variety of ways in which this might be made to happen. A common theme is the need for participation at the appropriate level: too often industrial policy has been hampered by overcentralised decision-making. Containing contributions by some of Europe's leading industrial economists, Industrial Policy for Europe covers subjects from small business to macroeconomics.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Early versions of the 19 contributions collected here were presented at the Warwick Conference of the European Network on Industrial Policy in December 1997 that focused on ways to establish a broad-based community control of industrial policy across Europe. Topics explored include the relationship between self-government and sustainable development, new types of work organization, small firm policy in Scotland, the regulation of transnational corporations, and the failure of policies which encourage firm mergers.
