CSC Working paper n.4 2018

Corresponding author: Fabrizio Traù

The paper analyses world industrial development in the course of the Globalisation Age. It focuses on four main issues: i) a retrospective analysis of development processes which characterized the different areas of the world in this period; ii) the rationale for manufacturing activity expansion in the so-called emerging economies; iii) the integration of manufacturing systems at the global level through the creation of international value chains and the expansion of direct investment flows; iv) the origin and main implications of the crisis which hit the world economy at the end of the long economic expansion cycle in the early years of the XXIst century.
