Management, Business and Economics

Description

We propose a theory of Economic Development in which technology adoption and barriers to such adoption are the focus. The size of these barriers differs across countries and time. The larger these barriers, the greater the investment a society must take to adopt a more advanced technology. The model base lied to the western countries, which have received a great and huge development of technology and goes away in an observation about the adaption of such technology by Albanian Economy, as a developing country. We are focus in identification of the main barriers affronted by Albania Economy finding the correlation between the difficulties in adaptation with such technology and the Albania social and economic environment. After twenty long years of transition we recommend, as the main road which will lead in an economic development based on the more advanced technology, the strongest Reform in Education.

The Role of The Technology in Developing Economies - Case of Albania

Prishtina, Kosovo

We propose a theory of Economic Development in which technology adoption and barriers to such adoption are the focus. The size of these barriers differs across countries and time. The larger these barriers, the greater the investment a society must take to adopt a more advanced technology. The model base lied to the western countries, which have received a great and huge development of technology and goes away in an observation about the adaption of such technology by Albanian Economy, as a developing country. We are focus in identification of the main barriers affronted by Albania Economy finding the correlation between the difficulties in adaptation with such technology and the Albania social and economic environment. After twenty long years of transition we recommend, as the main road which will lead in an economic development based on the more advanced technology, the strongest Reform in Education.
