The Competitive Advantage of Nations Summary


The Competitive Advantage of Nations by Michael E. Porter

'Professor Michael Porter [is] one of the world's most influential authorities on corporate strategy...[the book] stands to become a standard text for the analysis of relative national economic performance.' - Independent on Sunday 'Michael Porter builds up an all-embracing view of economic change that amounts in the end to a powerful analytical framework...he has done for international capitalism what Marx did for the class struggle.' - Economist 'The Competitive Advantage of Nations pulls off the seemingly impossible. It adds a fresh dimension to the international competitiveness debate, which has been going on since Adam Smith and David Ricardo.' - Times 'This book can be envisaged to have a major impact on the thinking of management and government policy-makers.' International Journal of Information Research Management
