Summary Venezuela is becoming one of the world's major players in international economics. In today's world, a nation's standard of living is increasingly influenced by the competitiveness of its industries and firms. This is especially true of Venezuela, where economic reforms have created new opportunities and challenges. Based on a comprehensive two-year study, Venezuela: The Challenge of Competitiveness represents a first-of-its-kind analysis of the competitiveness of the economy and industries of a developing nation. Not content to provide only analysis, the authors offer valuable recommendations for plans that businesses and the government can implement to improve Venezuela's overall economic performance. Enright, Frances, and Scott Saavedra's book is a superb piece of work that any individual interested in industrial competitiveness, economic reform, and Latin America will want to own.
