Research output: Book/ReportBook editingAcademicpeer-review


Changes in the dynamics of economic activities since the last decades of the 20th century have yielded major changes in the composition of industries and in the division of labor and production across different regions of the world. Despite these shifts in the global economy, some industries have remained competitive even without relocating their operations overseas. This book examines how and why the specificities of certain industries and firms determined their choice of location and competitiveness. The book argues that the specific characteristics of each industry defined the conditions of competitiveness.
