Abstract

Two major new features of social and economic systems have characterized the last two decades. On the one hand, technology increasingly plays a central role in all economic activities, with the rapid pace of technological change. On the other hand, all economic and technological activities have become global. The latter feature means that transfers and interchanges of technologies between countries have increased tremendously, and have become vital to their development.
