Abstract

Abstract This article questions the focus of national policies for international competitiveness. In almost every nation an industrial policy is invariably directed towards the improvement of technologically intensive products. In particular, recent work on U.S. international competitiveness has identified a growing weakness in U.S. high technology sectors, especially in comparison to the Japanese and other Asian rivals. Here this one-dimensional view of technology as the sole source of international competitiveness is challenged and a more relevant solution is put forward for managers of firms in mature and resource-based industries.
