Modernizing innovations: Analysing their use and prospects in Brazil

Howard Rush, Ian Miles, João Carlos Ferraz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A recent study, conducted in Brazil, has investigated the difusion of new technologies and new organizational techniques-both important facets of the emerging technoeconomic paradigm-in the context of a newly industrializing country. In addition to examining current levels of use of these innovations in leading firms, it examines the expectations of managers as to future prospects for their use, and the implications for employment, training and competitive circumstances. As well as presenting methodological innovations, this article reports on the empirical results-indicating considerable uptake of some elements of the new paradigm, but less effort with respect to others-and develops scenarios for the future of the Brazilian economy.
