Can the Relative Strength of the National Systems of Innovation Mitigate the Severity of the Global Recession on the BRICS?

IERI Working Paper 2010-001
Author/s: 
Angathevar Baskaran and Mammo Muchie

The research question we wish to investigate is the degree to which different countries with differing levels of NSI strength and weakness cope in mitigating some of the adverse impacts of the recession. In general during the recession confidence declines or what Keynes calls the „animal spirit‟. Creative destruction is heightened as firms destroyed need to find other ways of recreating their economic activities. Exports and imports change. Investment from abroad declines and consumers afraid of the recession save or even hoard.
