This book identifies cases of technological dynamism across a range of countries and industries, from the recent growth of the computer software industry in India to the aircraft industry in Brazil. These cases touch upon technological dynamism in manufacturing and service-oriented industries, and they consider how the effect of clustering, or the geographic agglomeration of firms engaged in the production of related and complementary items, can make sectors more technologically dynamic. This is a valuable book for scholars and students on the theory and practice of economics of technological change in developing countries.
