Industrial Policy—An Institutional Economic Framework for Assessment

Wilfred Dolfsma and Łukasz Mamica

Journal of Economic Issues, 2020, vol. 54, issue 2, 349-355

Abstract: In this article we suggest an institutional economic approach to classifying government policies, thus offering suggestions to improve the expected outcomes of government policy as well. We elaborate the argument for industrial policy-government policy to directly influence investment and resource allocation decisions by private companies. By adopting dimensions for industries that are stable over time, we can suggest which policies are suitable for which industries.
