After a brief stall during the energy crises of the early s, Japan spent a decade leading the world in competitiveness, exceeding by far the U.S. and Europe. By the mids, however, the export-led Japanese economic juggernaut collided with a U.S. economy overwhelmed by stagnant growth, inflationary pressures, and high interest rates. Santul Nerkar 1. Introduction A contemporary critique of American politics has been the decreasing competitiveness of congressional campaigns, both in state legislatures and in the U.S. Congress.

The pro- gram for the completion of the EC's inter- nal market by is largely based on the effects expected from a reinforcement of such a constraint.
The program requires the removal of barriers still affecting intra-EC trade, and hence the strengthening of European competition. China was a world leader in science and technology until the early years of the Ming dynasty.
Chinese discoveries and Chinese innovations such as papermaking, printing, the compass, and gunpowder (the Four Great Inventions) contributed to the economic development in East Asia, the Middle East and e scientific activity started to decline in the fourteenth century.
