    Trade, Technology, and International Competitiveness
    -Irfan ul Haque
    This book addresses international competitiveness from the perspective of developing countries that must exploit opportunities offered by international trade and the extraordinarily rapid technological progress in recent years. The book's central message is that while sound macroeconomic management is crucial for achieving a sustained rise in living standards, ultimately an economy's ability to generate and manage technological change determines its success in the world market and the pace at which it grows.
