After a decade or more of privatisation and deregulation there is a growing consensus that government can have a positive role in promoting industrial development. This book explores a variety of ways in which this might be made to happen. A common theme is the need for participation at the appropriate level: too often industrial policy has been hampered by overcentralised decision-making. Containing contributions by some of Europe's leading industrial economists, Industrial Policy for Europe covers subjects from small business to macroeconomics.

This timely and much-needed Handbook reconsiders an old topic from a fresh perspective, raising a number of new, interesting and worthwhile issues in the wake of ten years of globalization. This comprehensive analysis illustrates that old-style industrial policies whereby the government directly intervened in markets, and was often the producer itself, are no longer relevant. Structural changes occurring in economies summarized in the term globalization are triggering the definition and implementation of new industrial policies. The contributors, leading experts in their field, unite to evaluate this shift of over a decade ago. Employing various empirical and methodological approaches with a strong theoretical underpinning, this world-wide study of the state-of-the-art of industrial policy issues is an invaluable reference tool. It has been enthusiastically received by a wide-ranging audience including scholars, researchers and policy makers with an interest in industrial economics and policy, business studies and policies for growth, competitiveness and development.

The years since the global financial crisis have seen something of a renaissance in the manufacturing industry. The United States has launched its Advanced Manufacturing Partnership, and China owes much of its spectacular economic boom in the last decades to its being the 'world's factory'. Is there room for the EU in this landscape? This timely new book explores Europe’s role in this evolving environment. It argues that on the one hand, in terms of sheer numbers, the role of the manufacturing industry in the EU is on a par with other major global economies. However, the book also states that Europe falls short of its global competitors (the USA in particular) in terms of its involvement in the most innovative manufacturing sectors. The volume therefore argues that this creates the opportunity for a new European industrial policy. Exploring the development of current EU policy, the book puts forward suggestions as to how the EU can improve in terms of the competitiveness of its technology policy. Placing the EU’s position in the context of the industrial structures of the USA, Japan and the BRICs, the book blends theoretical models and practical examples in order to offer a the state of the art look at the current and future direction of Europe’s industrial policy. This book will be of relevance to all those with an interest in European economics, industrial economics, public policy, European politics and European studies.

'I very much enjoyed reading this collection of papers. First and foremost, they do justice to Keith Cowling - to his inspirational teaching and innovative research career. Second, a number of the papers are of genuine interest in their own right. Keith's (albeit indirect) influence is evident throughout, and Mike Waterson should be congratulated in putting together such a valuable volume.' - Stephen Davies, University of East Anglia, UK 'For more than three decades, Keith Cowling has been making substantial contributions to industrial economics, and to the development of industrial policy and strategy. These essays in his honour encompass the main themes of his work dealing with issues ranging over mergers and acquisitions, technical change, welfare implications of oligopoly, corporate governance and others. This volume provides a set of interesting papers which are a fine tribute to the contributions of Keith Cowling.' - Malcolm Sawyer, University of Leeds, UK Competition, Monopoly and Corporate Governance covers three broad themes, each associated with a particular strand of Keith Cowling's own writings in industrial economics and each represented by four specially commissioned papers.
