Is National Technology Policy Obsolete in a Globalised World?: The Japanese Response

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

It is increasingly argued that in a world where trade, business and finance, and science and technology cross national borders, attempts by national governments and firms to appropriate the fruits of national technology programmes are doomed to fail. Japan, although a late globaliser, is becoming increasingly globalised. However, Japanese policy-makers have responded by internationalising Japan's technology policy while retaining its national objectives. Are these policies doomed to fail or can they be justified? If the latter, is the Japanese case special, or is it at least to some extent valid for large Western countries?
