Part of the Contributions to Economics book series (CE)

Abstract

One of the main structural changes in all OECD countries has been a shift in employment and total output towards services. This trend indicates that services are a dynamic part of the economy and make an increasing contribution to employment and economic growth. Thus it could be argued that the “service or tertiary society” is the stage towards which all industrialised countries are moving.
