The industrial strategy has consisted of a varying mix of policy initiatives. These include initially protectionism against the competition waged by industrial pioneers. They also encompass a range of measures to foster innovation, imitation, and learning mechanisms aimed at enhancing industrial capabilities. Imitating and catching up with the pioneering industrializers, such as the United Kingdom and the United States, by other mature economies required considerable institutional innovation. Most noticeably, it was accompanied by an enhanced role of the state to coerce, cajole, and coordinate the financial, technological, and human efforts called for.

Expectations were raised, particularly in the 19808, when economists and policy makers began to identify the crowding out of private-sector activity by an artificially large public sector and an accompanying battery of regulations as the central obstacles to resuming strong growth. The response has been the removal of obstacles to the flow of resources into their most efficient use through concerted efforts to balance the budget, correct price distortions, and open up these economies. A common set of policy measures in support of rapid hberalization, privatization, and macroeconomic retrenchment were identified, widely endorsed by lEOs, and implemented by many national governments, particularly in lower- and middleincome countries.
