Summary In developing countries and emerging economies, traditional industrial practices can be linked to policy changes which foster innovation, but can equally result in stagnation if the policy/practice mix is wrong. These case studies -- from Brazil, Chinese Taipei, India and Korea -- demonstrate that where industrial habits tend to reduce competitiveness, policies can make a difference. The book opens a fresh debate on the industrial policies developing countries need to adopt to compete and grow in a globalized economic environment.
