Evolution and Concurrent Thinking on Industrial Strategy: Case of Finland
The paper provides a tentative interpretation of the evolution of the analytical foundations of industrial competitiveness policy. It is a policy practitioner’s commentary or observation. Competitiveness policy by its nature is horizontal and innovation, regional, digital, employment or competition, and indeed the macro-economic policies are closely linked to the competitiveness approach. These policies are not elaborated in this summary document, although there is a two-way link between them and competitiveness. Globalisation of the world economy has challenged all these policies too, and similar stocktaking between national policy and global conditions seems equally relevant there. The focus of the paper is on the national agenda, but some reference is made to regional and EU policy regimes, as policies at different levels should converge.
The paper is organised as follows: a brief analysis of Finnish industrial performance from catching to frontier economy is provided in section one. The next section deals with the evolution of an analytical policy framework in this transition. The third section outlines some new conceptual frameworks for policy. Finally, the paper is concluded with a brief summary of emerging new concepts for analysis and policy. ← 105 | 106 →
