Innovation and the State

Dan Breznitz

Yale University Press

This chapter describes the plurality, choice, and the politics of industrial innovation. One of the most unexpected developments of the 1990s has been that firms in a number of emerging states not known for their high-technology industries in the past have moved to the forefront in new information technologies. New technologies in themselves have become the final product, and the fact that production became increasingly fragmented internationally has altered the way in which industrial production is taking place. Accordingly, these changes have transformed the ways in which emerging economies can take part in the international economy. With the fragmentation of production and the rise of global production networks, no longer do whole industries locate in one specific geographical location. Emerging economies now have many different entry points around which to innovate and develop their own unique industrial strengths, inspiring innovation with many different faces.
