Industrial Dynamics: An Overview

  • Bo Carlsson
Part of the Studies in Industrial Organization book series (SIOR, volume 10)


What are the causes of industrial development and economic growth? What are the linkages between these processes and their micro foundations? What is the framework within which we can best answer these questions and understand the ongoing transformation and restructuring of world industry? These are the basic questions which motivated the conference upon which this volume is based.
