Dr. Bohdan Pikas, professor of marketing, and Dr. Tenpao Lee, interim dean of the College of Business Administration, co-authored Measurement of the Matching Degree Between the Structure of China's High-Tech Industry and of Technological Resources Input in Journal of Applied Business and Economics with colleagues from other institutions.
Here is the abstract:
"Based on general principles of welfare economics, a structure deviation index is constructed for the industry structure and the technological resources input structure. Taking China’s high-tech manufacturing and high-tech service industry from 2004 to 2013 as samples, the research measures the matching degree of the industry structure and the technological resources input structure between hightech manufacturing and high-tech service industry, among high-tech manufacturing sub-industries, and between two high-tech service sub-sectors, respectively. Conclusions are (i) allocation of technological resources between high-tech manufacturing and high-tech service industry is basically efficient; (ii)technological resources efficiency of high-tech manufacturing sub-industries exhibits gradientdifferences; (iii) information transfer, software and information technology services demonstrates longterm and absolute advantages."
