Small and medium-sized establishments (SMEs) account for a large proportion of industrial employment and production in almost all countries. Moreover, the recent literature emphasizes the role SMEs play in nurturing entrepreneurship and generating new products and processes. Although SMEs could be a source of new ideas and innovations, there are substantial productivity differences between small and large establishments. In this paper, we analyze three sources of productivity differentials: technical efficiency, returns to scale, and technical change. Our analysis on the creation, survival, and growth of new establishments in Turkish manufacturing industries in the period 1987-97 shows that all these three factors play a very important role in determining the survival probability and growth prospects of new establishments.

Before the mid-1990s the catch word was the “productivity paradox” coined by Robert Solow, who stated in 1987 that “computers are everywhere visible, except in the productivity statistics”. The New Economy, suddenly became the catch word of the very late 1990s. Its luster however, faded almost as fast as it arrived with the dot.com deaths of the first years of the new millennium.....

The accumulation of the studies that have tried to link the export performance of economic units (be they countries, industries or firms) with their technological orientation has basically generated a wide-spread emphasis on the role of technology in developed countries. As a matter of course, being developed and technological superiority have for long been the two sides of the same coin. Relative fewness of the studies, in this regard, which deal with the less-developed economies must not be surprising......
