Quick Reference

The deindustrialization of an economy as a result of the discovery of a natural resource, so named because it occurred in Holland after the discovery of North Sea gas. The discovery of such a resource lifts the value of the country's currency, making manufactured goods less competitive; exports therefore decline and imports rise.

Subjects: Business and Management — Economics.
