The new technologies based on microelectronics have changed production conditions, organizations and employment trends the world over. Although there are several studies on the impact of this technology for developed countries, the problems faced by developing countries in coping with this new technology have been given little attention. This volume examines the various issues that arise in a transition from old to new technologies. The actual problems faced by both the management and trade unions in tackling these technologies, and in using them in the promotion of growth and social welfare are analyzed. The book also contains a comparative analysis of the response to these technologies by East Asian economies, by advanced industrial economies and by developing countries.
