This book deals with the important question of how Japanese firms were able to dominate integrated circuit technology, a crucial technology that had been invented and pioneered in the United States. Based on interviews with Japanese CEOs and government officials, Methe finds the answer in the subtle balance of competitive and cooperative forces that exist in Japanese industry and government-sponsored research. The larger relationship between technological innovations, a firm's strategic approach to technology, and public policy, are explored, and the implications for U.S. firms are fully assessed with respect to planning effective international strategies.

Recent analysis of international competitiveness has helped to increase interest in technological innovation as a crucial factor determining which advantages are required in a new economic scenario. At the same time, particular attention has been devoted to the role which multinational corporations are now playing in the production of technological capabilities for the new global markets. However, little research has been done on the specific situations of intermediate countries. The aim of this book is to contribute to a better understanding of these situations. Thus, the first part deals with new developments of conceptual tools, more adequate for the specific cases sometimes known as "in the middle of the road". The second part consists of case studies of two main regions; on the one hand, countries of Southern Europe whose economic structures and historic trajectories show significant similarities and whose positions within the European Union face parallel changes. Although differences exist they all share important asymmetries in the process of internationalization: the presence of foreign multinational corporations is greater than the overseas presence of national firms. At the same time, they also resemble each other in their respective National Systems of Innovation. In comparison with the situation of the leading countries of the "triad", the role of explicit R&D is smaller and the sources of technological learning are based on the experience and the importation of technology. On the other hand, the most industrialized countries of Latin America are similar to the less developed European nations with respect to their international competitive situation. A central aspect to analyze is the new dynamism of foreign direct investment after a long period in which the internal difficulties entailed a withdrawal of foreign capital. The opening up process of recent years, together with renewed projects of economic integration, shape a new framework for the strategies of multinational cooperations and their relationship with local economies.

The aim of this book is to contribute to a better understanding of those intermediate countries with specific reference to two relevant international areas; those countries of southern Europe whose dynamic is very much influenced by the phases of European construction, and in countries of Latin America where the opening up process has changed the traditional role played by multinational corporations.

The debate over offshoring of production, transfer of technological capabilities, and potential loss of U.S. competitiveness is a long-running one. Prevailing thinking is that "the world is flat"â€"that is, innovative capacity is spreading uniformly; as new centers of manufacturing emerge, research and development and new product development follow. Innovation in Global Industries challenges this thinking. The book, a collection of individually authored studies, examines in detail structural changes in the innovation process in 10 service as well as manufacturing industries: personal computers; semiconductors; flat-panel displays; software; lighting; biotechnology; pharmaceuticals; financial services; logistics; and venture capital. There is no doubt that overall there has been an acceleration in global sourcing of innovation and an emergence of new locations of research capacity and advanced technical skills, but the patterns are highly variable. Many industries and some firms in nearly all industries retain leading-edge capacity in the United States. However, the book concludes that is no reason for complacency about the future outlook. Innovation deserves more emphasis in firm performance measures and more sustained support in public policy. Innovation in Global Industries will be of special interest to business people and government policy makers as well as professors, students, and other researchers of economics, management, international affairs, and political science.

This book examines how transnational corporations, small to medium enterprises and governments have emerged as the principal players in industrial development. This valuable work examines this trend, with particular reference to the role of the tax policy in technology development, the financing of technology-sector SMEs, the role of government policy and the relationship between competition and co-operation.
