¿Qué papel juega la especialización productiva en el crecimiento económico? Estudios recientes ponen de manifiesto que los países que exportan productos más sofisticados, en los que el margen de mejora en la calidad es más elevado, y que ofrecen muchas posibilidades de diversificación crecen más rápido. El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar la situación de los países de renta media con relación a estos tres factores y diagnosticar si su especialización productiva es la adecuada para impulsar el crecimiento económico.

Resumen (otros idiomas)

Are some specialisations more favourable to growth than others? Recent studies contend that countries growth opportunities are enhanced when they specialised in more productive goods, in goods that offer larger possibilities to climb in the quality ladder and in goods that open more channels to diversification. The aim of this study is to analyse the situation of middle-income countries in these three areas and to determine whether their specialisation is the appropiate to foster growth
