Innovation in Brazil, Advancing Development in the 21st Century
In this book, the editors unite a diverse array of empirical contributions around a few key themes, including public policies, institutions and innovation ecosystems, and firms and industries, that collectively make the case for a new, forward-looking innovation agenda aimed at addressing persistent challenges and exploiting emerging opportunities in Brazil. Its conclusions offer valuable lessons for other developing and emerging economies seeking to accelerate innovation and growth in the modern age.
In May, the book was officially launched at two events in São Paulo and Brasilia.

Compressed Development updates development theory in light of global integration, financialization, and the proliferation of international actors. Because of these and other changes, economic development has become ‘compressed,’ and processes or stages which were once experienced sequentially now happen nearly at the same time. This has changed how countries develop, and relate to one another. Industrialization has become ‘thin’ in any given country because industries are parceled out in global value chains. National development strategies have become harder to implement as countries face double challenges of managing the backward and hyper-advanced segments of their economies and societies
