Structural changes in transitive economies
The inter-industry differences in the capacity for technology change influence the intensity and quality of structural changes in the economy, its growth dynamics and competitiveness. The intensity of changing qualitative characteristics reflects the transition economies capacity for taking technology opportunities. On this background, the analysis proceeds to the qualitative characteristics of structural changes in selected transition economies (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia). Qualitative characteristics are specified in terms of factor input, technology intensity, product differentiation and market concentration, and labor skills. The methodology approaches are specified according to the alternative views of technology change, and the role of its qualitative characteristics in the long-term growth dynamics. The given criteria are applied to the analysis of export structure and its development in time (1995 - 1999). The two forms of structural change characteristics, i.e. its intensity and quality, are compared to identify their role in the export performance.
