Abstract:

The book attempts the comparison of five important characteristics of the structure of large-scale manufacturing industry in eight countries. The characteristics compared are 1 plant size of industries 2 concentration of output in plants 3 efficiency in manufacturing production as influenced by scale of plant 4 degree of control of individual industries by firms and 5 the degree of multiplant development by the larger firms in the industry. These comparisons are carried out for eight different countries of widely differing stages of economic development and with widely different economic structures and resource endowments.
