Example text

CONSEQUENCES OF STRUCTURAL CHANGE Balance of payments An alternative definition of deindustrialization is offered by Singh, based on the traditional role of manufacturing in UK trade flows. Historically the UK was a net exporter of manufactures, so that surplus foreign exchange was earned which enabled the country to run a deficit on its trade in food and raw materials. Singh (1977) defines an ‘efficient’ manufacturing sector as one which ‘not only satisfies the demands of consumers at home but is also able to sell enough of its products abroad to pay for the nation’s import requirements’.

3). Where the UK is unusual is in the insignificant growth of non-oil industrial production in the 28 years since 1973. Declining industrial employment need not be a problem; there is every indication that many British people would not freely choose industrial employment. There will, however, be the problem of rising unemployment if declining industrial employment is not compensated by increasing non-industrial employment. 4, employment levels were broadly maintained until 1979, but since then the growth of service sector employment has not compensated for falling industrial employment.

Nevertheless it is important to remember that the whole question of productivity differences is much more complex than might at first appear. For example, a NIESR research project investigated the reasons for observed differences in productivity between the US and Europe in two quite different sectors, namely the biscuit sector and the precision industry sector (Mason and Finegold 1997). The survey did find that some of the reasons for the higher US productivity could be related to higher physical capital investment per worker in these sectors in the US as compared to Europe.
