Structural Policy Issues in Production and Trade: A Western View

  • Juergen B. Donges
Part of the Vienna Institute for Comparative Economic Studies book series (VICES)


The purpose of this paper is to discuss major structural policy issues arising from changes in the international division of labour, technological innovations and energy scarcities. Emphasis will be put on the Western industrial countries. In view of their strength in the world economy, the ways in which they shape their structural policies for production and trade will affect directly or indirectly both the developing and the Eastern European countries.
