Editorial Reviews

Presents theoretical and empirical essays on the relationships between technology, growth, international competitiveness, and employment. Demonstrates that international competitiveness and market shares are determined by technological advantages, and discusses issues including the role of proximity and trade flows in stimulating dispersion of new knowledge, the role of multinationals as vehicles for technology diffusion, and the effects of technical progress on the demand for labor. For academics in international trade, economic growth, industrial organization, and technology. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
