Zusammenfassung

Der intra-industrielle Handel. GegenwÄrtige Perspektiven und ungelöste Probleme. - Der intra-industrielle Handel stand als Untersuchungsgegenstand in den letzten 25 Jahren und besonders im letzten Jahrzehnt in der vordersten Front weltwirtschaftlicher Forschung. Dieser Aufsatz versucht, die inzwischen umfangreich gewordene Literatur zu sichten und die Gebiete zu identifizieren, denen sich die Forscher in der nÄchsten Zeit mit Erfolg widmen sollten. Die Arbeit konzentriert sich auf Theorie, Messung, empirische Analyse und politische Aspekte des intra-industriellen Handels. Für jedes dieser Gebiete werden die gegenwÄrtigen Perspektiven herausgearbeitet und die ungelösten Fragen erörtert. Der Aufsatz kommt zu dem Ergebnis, da\ es Fortschritte beim intra-industriellen Handel als Forschungsprogramm gegeben hat und da\ es zahlreiche Fragen gibt, die noch nicht untersucht worden sind.

Résumé

Le commerce intra-industriel: perspective courante et questions ouvertes. - Le commerce intra-industriel a été un sujet de clé pour des investigateurs en sciences économiques internationales pendant les dernières vingt-cinq années et particulièrement pendant la dernière décade. Dans cet article les auteurs essaient d’évaluer la littérature volumineuse et d’identifier les sujets sur lesquels les investigateurs pourraient se concentrer en future prochaine. L’article se concentre sur les études concernant la théorie, le mesurage, l’analyse empirique et les aspects politiques. Ils identifient pour chaque de ces sujets les perspectives courantes et discutent les questions ouvertes. Ils tirent la conclusion que le commerce intra-industriel a été un programme de recherche progressif et qu’il y a un nombre extensif des questions qu’il faut analyser.

Resumen

El comercio intrasectorial: perspectiva actual y problemas pendientes. - El comercio intrasectorial ha sido un área de frontera para investigadores de la economfa internacional durante los Últimos veinticinco años y particularmente durante la Última década. Este trabajo intenta revisar lo que hoy constituye una voluminosa literatura e identificar aquellas áreas que merezcan la atención de los investigadores en el futuro immediato. El trabajo se concentra en aspectos teóricos, relativos a la medición, al análisis empírico y a la política. Para cada una de estas areas se identifican las perspectivas actuales y se discuten los problemas pendientes. Se concluye que el comercio intrasectorial ha sido un programa de investigation progresivo y que aÚn permanecen sin explorar numerosos aspectos.
