The atlas of economic complexity

Hausmann, Ricardo,

9780262525428 - The atlas of economic complexity

Artikelomschrijving

Why do some countries grow and others do not? The authors of The Atlas of Economic Complexity offer readers an explanation based on Economic Complexity, a measure of a societys productive knowledge. Prosperous societies are those that have the knowledge to make a larger variety of more complex products. The Atlas of Economic Complexity attempts to measure the amount of productive knowledge countries hold and how they can move to accumulate more of it by making more complex products. Through the graphical representation of the Product Space, the authors are able to identify each countrys adjacent possible, or potential new products, making it easier to find paths to economic diversification and growth. In addition, they argue that a countrys economic complexity and its position in the product space are better predictors of economic growth than many other well-known development indicators, including measures of competitiveness, governance, finance, and schooling.
