Abstract
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.

This is a book unlikely to be read by historians. Or rather, they may read it, but in their capacity as citizens concerned as the book's subtitle puts it about "Possibilities for Prosperity." The Second Industrial Divide is indeed a work of contemporary analysis. Like other books this publishing season, it is intended to give us the lowdown about the economic crisis of the 1980s. But this one is also very much a work of history. The book is remarkable in general for its intellectual breadth, but...

In this book Alice Amsden and Wan-wen Chu cover new ground by analyzing the phenomenon of high-end catch-up. They study how leading firms from the most advanced latecomer countries like Taiwan have increased their market share in mature high-tech industries and services. The profits that true innovators in these industries once enjoyed have already declined, but profit rates are still above average. The latecomer firm that succeeds in capturing these rents earns "second-mover" advantage. Amsden ...

Trade across the Pacific will be one of the dominant forces in the economy of the next century. This collection reflects the birth of Pacific Rim history, until recently largely neglected. It addresses the development of the Pacific Rim over four centuries, combining broad historical syntheses with a range of essays on specific topics, from trade with Hong Kong to British overseas banking. It will form a major contribution to this rapidly expanding new field.

Beginning with the US role in the design and start-up of the bank, Gwin describes the ebb and flow of US support for the bank: the increasing activism of congress in US World Bank policy starting in the 1970s, the breakdown in the bipartisan character of US support for the Bank in the early Reagan years of the 1980s, followed by renewed US attention in response to the debt crisis, and the entry into the bank of Russia and other transforming economies. The book disputes both those who see the Ban...

Abstract In order to deploy the crucial levers in the transformation of the Chinese mode of economic development, it is necessary to identify the nature and reasons for the economy’s existing mode of operation. The paradox of China’s “double surplus” in the international balance of payments reflects the substantive issue of the appearance of a capability gap in Chinese economic development, which, interacting with dependence on FDI, hinders industry upgrading. As a result, the extensive mode of ...

Paul Krugman's contribution in the development of "new" trade theory pushed the profession beyond the overly simplistic assumption of perfect competition. Since then, new trade theory has tended to be integrated and reconciled with traditional trade theory, undermining its deployment in support of successful strategic trade policy intervention.

This article seeks to explain the determinants of France influence compared to that of China in Francophone Africa. Focusing on the paradigm of structural power as theorized by Susan Strange, it will attempt to debunk any considerations of a “declining” French influence in Francophone Africa. It will be argued that the existence of "special relationships" manifested through close political and cultural ties but also through covert economic and military networks give onto France the potentials to...

This article investigates the infl uence that a regime type has on GDP per capita growth. Statistical investigation showed that, during the 1820-1950 period, democracies were much more successful than dictatorships in promoting economic growth. However, during the last fi fty years, dictatorships achieved results that were equivalent to democracies in the promotion of GDP per capita growth.

For any market to work properly, certain key elements are necessary: competition, pricing, rules, clearly defined offers, and easy access to information. Without these components, there would be chaos. Orderly Fashion examines how order is maintained in the different interconnected consumer, producer, and credit markets of the global fashion industry. From retailers in Sweden and the United Kingdom to producers in India and Turkey, Patrik Aspers focuses on branded garment retailers--chains such ...

The hundredth anniversary of the birth of Raul Prebisch is an invaluable opportunity for us to take another look at the ideas of this great Latin American, one of the thinkers from the developing world who has had the strongest influence in world economic debates. His ideas have been the subject of heavy criticism, but much of this has been based on distorted versions of his thinking or of its practical application, rather than his true intellectual work. Taking his proposals out of their histor...
