The link between implementation of DAMD and a dynamic system of country-wide industrial evolution is essential for understanding the diverse pattern of inter-country or inter-regional competition.</p> <p>By selectively reviewing a cross section of the catch-up literature on economic growth it is shown which essential elements of long-run sustainable growth dominate to achieve superior performance and why informationally efficient mechanism design of the Hayek-Hurwicz type is a superior vehicle for industry based economic growth in a globalized economy.</p> </div> </div> </div> 2021-01-17T15:49:23+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Hans W.
