The Industrialization Process: A Streamlined Version

  • Murat A. Yülek


What is the typical/streamlined process of the industrialization? How can we determine the stage of the industrialization in a country? This is important and determines the profit which the country makes from industrialization. This chapter develops a simple theory of the stages of industrialization and locates different countries on that streamlined process map.
