Description
This book assesses the determinants of manufactured export and industrial performance in the context of a developing country continuously implementing market-friendly policies. It includes analyses at the macro, industrial and microeconomic levels with original econometric and microeconomic evidence, and new comparisons with the East Asian Tigers. The technological capabilities approach is used to explain Chile's pattern of microeconomic performance, with success constrained to simple-technology resource-intensive sectors. The book shows how the policy framework affected the direction and depth of the firms' learning efforts and hindered their spread into a wider range of activities.
