Review of The Competitive Advantage of Nations: Michael Porter Open Access

Michael Porter’s Competitive Advantage of Nations, though it is written from the perspective of the business school rather than the economics department, and is primarily focused on understanding the distribution of leading positions in industries held by the advanced economies, is potentially an extraordinarily important book for the development field. It is the first serious attempt to develop a really original grand theory of national economic development processes since the early years of Postwar development economics, and represents one of the most original ways of thinking about development policy in years.
