The Rise of the Rest: Challenges to the West from Late-Industrializing Economies

Published on Jan 1, 2001

Estimated H-index: 24
After World War II a select number of countries outside Japan and the West--those that Alice Amsden calls "the rest"--gained market share in modern industries and altered global competition. By 2000, a great divide had developed within "the rest", the lines drawn according to prewar manufacturing experience and equality in income distribution. China, India, Korea and Taiwan had built their own national manufacturing enterprises that were investing heavily in R&D. Their developmental states had transformed themselves into champions of science and technology. By contrast, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico had experienced a wave of acquisitions and mergers that left even more of their leading enterprises controlled by multinational firms. The developmental states of Mexico and Turkey had become hand-tied by membership in NAFTA and the European Union. Which model of late industrialization will prevail, the "independent" or the "integrationist," is a question that challenges the twenty-first century. Available in OSO:

This paper traces the development path of Taiwan’s personal computer industry. Four groups of firms are identified: decedents of the TV industry in the early 1970s, decedents of the calculator industry in the late 1970s, new entrants that pioneered Taiwan’s PC industry, and follow-up entrants that concentrate on PC peripherals. The technology roots of each group of firms are examined and their roles in the industry are discussed. Vertical disintegration and de-technology are two important strate...

Abstract The connections between economic growth (EG) and human development (HD) form two chains. Crosscountry regressions show a significant relationship in both directions, with public expenditures on health and education, notably female, especially important in the chain from EG to HD; and the investment rate and income distribution significant in the HD to EG chain. This gives rise to virtuous or vicious cycles, with good or bad performance on HD and EG reinforcing each other. Evidence over ...

Flail members are mounted on a rotatable drum by providing a plurality of angularly spaced rows of longitudinally spaced openings in the drum. A tube rectangular in cross section extends through each opening and is secured rigidly to the drum for receiving a clevis with a sliding fit with the inner end of a flail member being attached to the clevis. Transverse openings through the walls of the tube and the legs of the clevis are aligned with each other in a direction longitudinally of the drum f...

This book develops a new approach to measuring the total returns to human resource development through investment in education. Drawing on microanalytic foundations, it uses regional and worldwide data to estimate the net marginal contributions of education and new knowledge both to economic growth and to wider effects on democratization, human rights, political stability, health, net population growth rates, reduction of poverty, inequality in income distribution, crime, drug use, and the envir...

This paper describes the history, size and scope of the public enterprise sector in Brazil, using a variety of indicators and drawing from different interpretative sources. It shows that at least until the 1970s, state-owned enterprises contributed to the industrialization process and to fiscal results. The paper sets out the political and institutional framework in which privatizations are implemented, compares its main features with those prevailing in some other countries, and provides an upd...

Theoretically the effect of competition on corruption is ambiguous. Less competition means firms enjoy higher rents, so that bureaucrats with control rights over them, such as tax inspectors or regulators, have higher incentives to engage in malfeasant behavior. Examples of a positive connection between rents and corruption abound, however. The hypothesis that natural rents, as in the case of oil, and rents induced by lack of product market competition foster corruption, is examined. A model is ...

The primary aim of this article is to reprise the debate about the role and competence of the state in innovation and development, building on the contributions of new industrial policy. It then examines the experience of one of the most ambitious mission-led innovation programmes ever launched in Europe, the Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3) programme, which has been influenced by industrial policy ideas. The article also identifies a number of challenges facing the S3 programme, particularly ...

This paper examines the impact of agrarian structures on the migration behavior and destination of rural household heads and individuals in Kenya. To explore the complexity of migration we extend the standard Harris-Todaro framework to account for land inequality and size. In addition, we disaggregate urban destination into different types of urban centers and also consider rural-to-rural migration. Using logistic regressions, we show that Kenyan household heads born in districts with higher lan...

The international spread of STS has reshaped the discipline in many ways, pushing it from its original core focus on technoscience in Euro-America to embrace new and wider agendas in other locations. For the practitioners of STS in East Asia, the complex relations between geographical region and forms of knowledge in technoscience are firmly on the agenda, and they have conceptualized these in a range of different and sometimes contradictory ways. The multiplicity of East Asian STS is also refle...

The paper investigates the role of technology in the growing competitive potential of state-controlled national oil companies (NOCs) from developing countries. The technological development of NOCs is analyzed in the context of their increasing rivalry with supermajors, which have dominated the global oil and gas industry for decades. The author reveals the main features of NOCs’ catch-up development amid the dynamic changes in the competitive landscape of the global oil industry. These trends w...

ABSTRACTFor four decades, China has gradually re-shaped the distribution of global economic activity, underpinned by a low-wage demographic dividend era. For around a decade, however, both demographic and economic structural change, at home and abroad, have incrementally shifted China's comparative advantage away from low-wage industrialisation. In response, China now seeks to become an international investor in these industries under the umbrella of the country's flagship Belt and Road Initiati...

This paper is based on data collected from fieldwork in 2003 and 2013 in and around the small town of Bora in the Oromiya Zone of the Amhara Region in north-eastern Ethiopia. When Bora was first visited in 2003 it was an isolated place with a population of less than 1000. There was a police station, a health centre dependent upon a diesel generator, and a small weekly market. The town lacked electricity and the town’s water-supply pump did not work. By 2013, following wider changes at the nation...

During its model of industrialization by import substitution, Argentina achieved not only the deepest and most articulated industrial framework of the Latin American region, but also the most organized and combative working class. The military dictatorship that seized power in March 1976 aimed to interrupt the process of industrialization, and to eradicate the bases that made it sustainable, and the attack was particularly severe on the organizational capability of the working class. Not only di...
