Abstract

This paper has two intertwined parts – a proposal for a conceptual and theoretical framework to understand technical change in late industrializing economies and an empirical test of the usefulness of that new framework by means of a comparative study of the Brazilian and South Korean cases. The first part asserts that the unwarranted use of the National Innovation System’s (NIS’s) approach to late industrializing economies could incur in serious shortcomings. The comparative analysis of Brazil and of South Korea, developed in the second part of the paper, demonstrates that the system of technical change of each country can be characterized as cases of, respectively, Passive and Active National Learning Systems.
