  4. Competitiveness and the Value of Intangible Assets

    Competitiveness and the Value of Intangible Assets

    Edited by Pierre Buigues, Alexis Jacquemin, Jean-François Marchipont
    The authors find that the growing importance of intangibles is transforming the direction of public policies in Europe, particularly industrial, R&D, competition and trade policies. They conclude that government policies must recognise the fact that intangible investment is becoming the key element in bringing about durable growth and accord at least the same priority to intangible factors as to physical investment.

  5. Social Partnership and Economic Performance

    Social Partnership and Economic Performance

    Bernard Casey, Michael Gold
    In recent years, and to varying degrees, there has been a marked trend towards decentralisation of labour market regulation in many European countries. The authors of this book seek to assess the impact of social partnership and social protection on the macroeconomic performance of nine member states of the European Union – namely Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the UK. They compare the performance outcomes of these countries with the USA over the last twenty years and find that, in broad terms, the countries that perform ‘best’ are those that have adapted and decentralised their systems of social partnership and protection.

    The Dynamics of Asian Manufacturing

    Marcel P. Timmer
    Dr Timmer describes the manufacturing performance of five Asian countries since the 1960s: China, India, Indonesia, South Korea and Taiwan. Over this period Asian industrial development is placed in an international perspective by comparison with the world productivity leader, the USA. The author uses new empirical data to assess the degree of structural change in the manufacturing sector and its importance for productivity growth. He then discusses conditions for economic growth and catch up, and reviews the role of industrial and technology policies in the promotion of industrial development in Asia. Learn More

    Industrial Location and Economic Integration

    Barbara Dluhosch
    In recent decades the world economy has been characterized by deepening and widening integration.

In this book, Barbara Dluhosch opposes this position and presents an entirely different view of the consequences of globalization. Learn More
