Aspekt sektoralny zmian strukturalnych w gospodarce Niemiec
MetadataShow full item record
The economic practice shows that development processes in particular economies are characterized by constant structural changes both within particular regions and sectors. It proves that structural changes are not only an inseparable element accompanying economic growth but quite often a condition of positive changes in the economy taking place in its growth process. There exists a number of theoretical conceptions explaining causes of structural changes both in the sectorial and regional approach. In this article an attempt was made to present a three-sectorial hypothesis of structural changes on the basis of empirical data concerning the Federal Republic of Germany. The performed analysis shows that in the development process of Germany’s economy there took place an evolution not only in the economy structure in its intersectorial aspect but also in the structure of particular sectors. The changes discussed in the article are a typical phenomenon for most highly developed countries. Their characteristic feature is the fact that these processes both as regards their scope and sequence of their stages display many similarities in most countries. The growing or the declining role of paticular sectors within the economy is characterized by numerous causalities, with the most important of them being a mutual correlation between particular stages and level of development attained by a given country. The analysis of structural changes on the example of Germany leads to the conclusion that the Germany experience, as well as the experience of other Western countries, can be helpful in forecasting these processes in Poland.
