Example text

The economic rents that are generated by economies of scale will not lead to sustained growth if they are dissipated in inefficient cities, unstable societies, or corrupt governments. The need for progress is greater in middle-income countries in Southeast Asia, where the process of decentralization may create short-term reversals unless new institutional mechanisms are found to increase public accountability and reduce impunity. There is little doubt that the appropriate solutions will take time and that progress in a number of areas is required.

Economies in other middleincome regions, such as Eastern Europe and Latin America, show only one-half to two-thirds as much participation in R&D by business. The presumption is that the commercial returns to R&D are likely to be higher if the share of business in the spending is higher. This augurs well for East Asia. Innovation is more rapid when domestic capacity for knowledge absorption is high. This requires an educated labor force and quality academic institutions, the protection of intellectual property rights, and effective collaboration between research institutions and the private sector.

What happens to workers in this case? In a study of five cities in China where enormous labor market restructuring has occurred during the reform of stateowned enterprises, Giles, Park, and Cai (2006) have found that workers younger than 40 years of age who were reemployed were able to raise their average earnings, while those over 40 got lower wages. Two-thirds of workers were not able to find new jobs within a 12-month period, suffering considerable income losses. The pattern is quite different in Vietnam, where workers laid off from state enterprises have been able to improve their incomes, and workers remaining with their enterprises have achieved wage and productivity gains.
