Norwegian Catch-Up : Development and Globalization before World War II Paperback / softback
Norwegian Catch-Up looks at the early Norwegian economic trajectory in light of its external commitments and opportunities.
Detailing Norway's economic performance relative to other countries at a time characterized by globalization, it has particular focus on the role of international trade, investment and migration. The book examines how a small open state adapted successfully to the demands of (and opportunities provided by) a global market place.
Not only did Norway manage an impressive economic record but it developed concomitantly.
In short the Norwegian example provides hope for development in a context of globalization. This text provides the student with a pioneering new vantage point for understanding the nature and scope of today's globalization and its effect on economic (and political) development.
It also provides a historical reflection on the liberal antecedent of modern social democracy.
