Review quote

This book is an authoritative team effort in the study of competitiveness. Well-written and researched, the study provides an exhaustive treatment of competitiveness in relation to development, education, and a range of other issue areas. This is necessary reading for political economists of all stripes. -- Patrick James, University of Southern California The papers in Modern Competitiveness offer quite interesting insights to the problems that small countries face in the increasingly competitive global markets. The book is of particular relevance to scholars interested in how the Caribbean countries try to make themselves more domestically and internationally competitive. -- Frederic S. Lee, University of Missouri-Kansas City This ambitious book tackles the many dimensions and levels of competitiveness in the context of globalization. It draws in a wide range of country experiences in seeking to develop their competitiveness in striving for development and the interactions of the socio-cultural and legal issues and competitiveness. These essays are important contributions to understanding and developing competitiveness at many levels in a globalizing world. -- Malcolm Sawyer, University of Leedsshow more
