This book reveals how the previously weak Portuguese economy has now experienced growth, convergence, structural change and international competition. David Corkhill analyses the Europeanization of the Portuguese economy in the context of closer European integration, globalization and the struggle to achieve international competitiveness. It also assesses the pitfalls Portugal may face as part of Europe.

Industry Reviews

"This useful survey of the Portuguese economy complements and updates Corkill's earlier writings. ...this book is largely descriptive...it stands as perhaps the most comprehensive study of the Portuguese economy. Recommended for academic, research, and professional collections." -"Choice
