  • 演講摘要 : The flying geese (FG) hypothesis, which asserts the sequential catching-up processes of the latecomers, holds well in the past. Yet a simultaneous boom within the electronics industry across East Asia castes doubt on the applicability of the hypothesis. By using the RCA and NET indices, the paper finds that the FG pattern shows in the electronics industry as a whole, but not always so at the disaggregated level. This suggests that the FG formation may not appear in other industries, if they are involved in international production fragmentation or have differentiated products, and if certain latecomers have become new leaders.
