Show Summary Details


Late‐industrializing countries such as Japan and South Korea appear to challenge existing economic powers such as the U.S.A. precisely in those areas in which the challengers excel by virtue of their recent histories as learners. Consequently, the book concludes with the major lessons that the learning paradigm of late industrializing offers to countries wishing to reindustrialize. In addition to illuminating the path of late industrializers, the paradigm's reflection also suggests where innovators might change their rules of behavior to compete in a world that now includes a generation of latecomers reared on the learning tradition.
