    With domestic rivals, there are no excuses. What a new theory must explain is why a nation provides a favorable home base for companies that compete internationally. Selective disadvantages in factors of production will not motivate innovation unless rivalry is vigorous and company goals support sustained investment. His steadfast advocacy of freedom led directly to the so-called German economic miracle.

    Inhe wrote a fantastic book that explains his rationale. Change is tempered by the fear that there is much to lose. India and Mexico both have low wages and low labor costs—but neither seems an attractive industrial model. Ultimately, nations succeed in particular industries because their home environment is the most forward-looking, dynamic, and challenging. All of the producers were privately held, most were family run. With few exceptions, innovation is the result of unusual effort.

    In such an environment, the firm Prosperity through competitiveness. book the growth engine and needs to focus less on acquiring government favours or simply accessing natural resources. Government should aim to encourage sustained investment in human skills, in innovation, and in physical assets. By stimulating early demand for advanced products, confronting industries with the need to pioneer frontier technology through symbolic cooperative projects, establishing prizes that reward quality, and pursuing other policies that magnify the forces of the diamond, the Japanese government accelerates the pace of innovation. In industry after industry, the tightly constrained requirements of the Japanese market have forced companies to innovate, yielding products that are kei-haku-tan-sho—light, thin, short, small—and that are internationally accepted. His ideas and personal involvement have shaped strategy in countries as diverse as the Netherlands, Portugal, Taiwan, Costa Rica, and India, and regions such as Massachusetts, California, and the Basque country.

Sometimes early-mover advantages such as customer relationships, scale economies in existing technologies, or the loyalty of distribution channels are enough to permit a stagnant company to retain its entrenched position for years or even decades.

Particularly when there are economies of scale, local competitors force each other to look outward to foreign markets to capture greater efficiency and higher profitability.

In many of the prominent industries in which there is only one national rival, such as aerospace and telecommunications, government has played a large role in distorting competition. Preparing Workers Will Determine State's Economic Future By Pam Goins, CSG Director of Education Policy The gap between how well states prepare and equip their workforce and what is demanded in a highly dynamic, technologically advanced and globally structured 21st century economy is growing.

In a world of increasingly global competition, nations have become more, not less, important. We must understand how and why commercially viable skills and technology are created, which can only be fully understood at the level of particular industries.

De Soto suggests that no nation can have a strong market economy without adequate participation in a framework that enforces legal ownership of property and records economic activity, because they are the prerequisites to obtaining credit, selling properties, and seeking legal remedies to conflicts in court.

These approaches, now much in favor in both companies and governments, are flawed. Strict government regulations can promote competitive advantage by stimulating and upgrading domestic demand. A good example is hydraulic excavators, which represent the most widely used type of construction equipment in the Japanese domestic market—but which comprise a far smaller proportion of the market in other advanced nations.

What stands out most compellingly here is the group to whom he pitched his work. Or innovations may come from another nation with different circumstances or different ways of competing. Switzerland has roughly balanced trade; Italy has a chronic trade deficit—both nations enjoy strongly rising national income.

Especially stringent needs arise because of local values and circumstances. But change is an unnatural act, particularly in successful companies; powerful forces are at work to avoid and defeat it. The innovation reduced high labor costs—which had been a substantial selective factor disadvantage facing Italian tile manufacturers.

Local rivals push each other to lower costs, improve quality and service, and create new products and processes. Conventional wisdom argues that domestic competition is wasteful: it leads to duplication of effort and prevents companies from achieving economies of scale.

A process that took employees using the double-firing method needed only 90 employees using single-firing roller kilns.

National circumstances and context create strong tendencies in how companies are created, organized, and managed, as well as what the nature of domestic rivalry will be.

Rather, when market forces create rising factor costs or a higher exchange rate, government should resist the temptation to push them back down.
