In the wake of the global financial crisis, there is a new impetus for industrial policy. In Europe and the United States, where the crisis emphasized that markets are by themselves imperfect, industrial policy has re-entered the dialogue about restoring growth. And in emerging economies especially, policymakers have taken a keen interest in the various ways smart industrial policy can help sustain growth and open up new possibilities for employment creation. In this volume, world-renowned economists and policymakers write about industrial policy's rejuvenation, particularly in a development context. Through discussions of theory and case studies, the volume provides the broad context for its companion, New Thinking on Industrial Policy: Implications for Africa.
