State-Firm Coordination and Upgrading

Reaching the Efficiency Frontier in Skill-, Capital-, and Knowledge-Intensive Industries in Spain and South Korea

Angela Garcia Calvo

  • Challenges conventional views on economic development through a unique comparison between two countries that have successfully pursued different strategies
  • Characterises upgrading as a coordination problem between states and firms, rather than an issue based on either market mechanisms or top-down state activism
  • Considers the trajectory of two countries that challenge the traditional view of the world as divided between advanced or developing economies
