About this product
- DescriptionIn 1980 the Indian software industry was practically n-existent. By the 1990s the industry was one of the largest employers in manufacturing. Similar patterns of growth can be found in other emerging ecomies. So given that the software industry is commonly viewed as a high-tech industry, how is it that such spectacular growth has occurred in countries where high-tech industries would t seem likely to develop? This book examines the reasons behind this phemen, and asks whether it suggests a new model of ecomic development. The contributors explore the implications of the rise of these newcomers to the software market for the global industry, and whether there are things to be learnt about the role of human capital in ecomic growth, firm formation and capabilities, business and managerial models, and industry structure. Chapters include country studies on Brazil, China, India, Ireland, and Israel, and are complemented by cross-cutting chapters on some of the key issues highlighted by the growth patterns of software in these nations, most tably the role of the multinational companies, the globalization of the skilled worker flows, and the formation of firm capabilities. The velty of the growth patterns in the regions that studied makes this book useful for understanding analytical and empirical issues underlying new microfoundations of ecomic growth in some emerging regions of the world.
