This publication identifies the key issues in the global economy and the design of development strategies addressed in the Trade and Development Report over the past three decades, tracing them through its various editions. It shows how ideas, opinions and proposals expressed in the Trade and Development Report, and the analytical approaches used, differed from those of “the mainstream” and their evolution in response to new challenges. This review revisits the concept of interdependence and explains the approach of the reports to macroeconomic and financial policies in both developed and developing countries. It also summarizes development policy failures and successes over the years.



International science and technology indicators

The fact that technological innovations originate from a variety of sources and that innovative activity takes several different forms makes it difficult to find direct measures of this type of activity. In many innovation studies, therefore, the common practice has been to assess various indicators of one or more of the components of the innovative process. The convention has been to distinguish between input indicators of the resources and effort spent in producing innovations and output indicators of the ability to introduce new products and processes.
