Bu makalenin amacı, 1965-1999 dönemi için farklı gelir ve kalkınmışlık düzeyindeki ülkelerin imalat sanayilerini inceleyerek, üretkenlik ve sınai yapı arasındaki ilişkileri saptamaktır. Bu amaçla, öncelikle imalat sanayii üretim ve istihdamının teknolojik yönelime göre evrimi incelenmiş, daha sonra yapısal değişimin üretkenlik artışındaki etkisi araştırılmıştır. İmalat sanayii yapısının teknolojik yönelime göre betimleyici analizi, özellikle hızlı büyüyen ülkelerin sınai yapılarının yüksek teknoloji yoğun ve uzmanlaşmış sektörlere doğru yöneldiğini gösterirken, ayrıştırma (decomposition) analizi özellikle sanayileşmiş ekonomilerin imalat sanayilerindeki yapısal değişimin üretkenlik artışında çok ciddi bir katkısının olmadığını göstermektedir. Bu bulgu, sanayileşmede başarılı olan ülkelerin imalat sanayiinin bütün alt sektörlerinde yüksek üretkenlik artışı sağladığını göstermektedir....

The present paper offers a novel study of the effects of intangible assets on wages and productivity. Training, R&D and physical capital are all taken into account, and their joint effects are examined. We use panels of firms in order to control for unobserved fixed effects and the potential endogeneity of training and R&D, using data for France and Sweden. The estimation of productivity and wage equations allows us to show how the benefits of investment in physical capital, training, and R&D are shared between the firm and the workers. We found that firms indeed obtain the largest part of the returns to their investments, but their share is relatively lower for intangible assets (R&D and training) than for physical capital....

FDI has been considered by many development economists as an important channel for transfer of technology to developing countries. It is suggested that modern, advanced technologies introduced by multinational firms can diffuse to domestic firms through spillovers. In this paper, we study innovation and technology transfer activities of domestic and foreign firms in Turkish manufacturing industries, and the impact of horizontal, vertical and labor spillovers on these activities. Our analysis shows that foreign firms are more innovative than their domestic counterparts, and transfer technology from abroad (mostly from their parent companies). ....

Firm and industry dynamics have received considerable attention in recent years. There are numerous theoretical and empirical studies that shed light on the processes of entry, exit, and growth of firms. These studies show that new firms start small, and small and young firms are less likely to survive. In all countries, a large proportion of new firms survive only a few years. We expect that entrepreneurs are also aware of these stylized facts, and take measures that reduce the costs of (potential) exit.....

Firm demography has received considerable attention in recent years. There are numerous theoretical and empirical studies that shed light on the dynamics of firm survival and growth. These studies show that new firms start small, small firms are less likely to survive, and small firms grow faster conditional on their survival. These stylized facts on firm dynamics triggered the examination of determinants of survival. The studies in the literature treat start-up size as exogenous to survival....

This paper describes and analyses Vision 2023 Turkish National Technology Foresight Program. The paper is not about a mere description of the activities undertaken. It analyses the Program from a contextualist perspective, where the Program is considered in its own national and organizational contexts by discussing how the factors in these contexts led to the particular decisions taken and approaches adopted when the exercise was organized, designed and practiced...
