New Industries From New Places
The Emergence of the Software and Hardware Industries in China and IndiaBook - 2009
Over the past 15 years, the twin giants of Asia--China and India--have jumped on the opportunity provided by the IT revolution to turbocharge their economic growth. India has become a software services powerhouse, while China churns out much of the world's IT hardware. How did these countries achieve global competitiveness so quickly? Why did software predominate in one and hardware the other?This book represents the first attempt to go beyond anecdote and generalization in discussing the unprecedented emergence of these new industries over such a short period. It presents the first rigorous comparison of the growth performance of hardware manufacturing and software services sectors in China and India. It examines the economic context and the business environment for private enterprise in China and India, and considers how far differences in economic policies or the business environment can go in explaining the observed distinctions between the two. The book concludes by evaluating explanations for the growth performance of hardware and software in each country, drawing conclusions for future economic policies and business strategies.
