Notes
  • This paper investigates the evolution of the industrial structure in the Canadian manufacturing sector and its relationship to technological change by examining the take-up of advanced technologies and how it is related to the stochastic growth process in the plant population. Its framework is grounded in the view that growth is a stochastic process that involves learning. Experimentation with new technologies rewards some firms with superior growth and profitability. Examining how growth is associated with the choice of different technology strategies indicates which of these is being rewarded. The evolution of this process is studied by examining the relationship between the uptake of advanced technologies and the performance of plants in the manufacturing sector. This is done by using crosssectional data on advanced technology use and by combining it with longitudinal panel data on plant performance. In particular, the paper examines the relationship between the use of information ... Impact de l’adoption des techniques de l’information et des communications sur la performance des entreprises dans le secteur manufacturier au Canada Le présent document s’intéresse à l’évolution de la structure industrielle du secteur manufacturier au Canada de même qu’à son lien avec le changement technologique en examinant l’adoption de technologies de pointe et son rapport avec le processus de croissance stochastique dans la population des usines. Il s’articule autour du point de vue selon lequel la croissance est un processus stochastique dans lequel intervient l’apprentissage. L’expérimentation des nouvelles technologies récompense certaines enterprises à croissance et à rentabilité supérieures. Pour savoir lesquelles, on y examine le rapport entre la croissance et le choix de différentes stratégies technologiques. Le document étudie l’évolution de ce processus en sondant la relation entre l’adoption de nouvelles technologies et la performance des usines dans le secteur manufacturier; cela se fait par la combinaison de données transversales sur les technologies de pointe à des données de panel longitudinales sur la ...
