Today, powerful new tools allow countries to better chart the road ahead, identify the obstacles to prosperity, and define actions that can lead to economic growth. This new approach focuses on expanding a country's set of productive capabilities and expressing them in a more diverse and complex set of products. Contrary to a commonly held belief, as countries become more developed, their citizens and firms specialize, but the national, regional, and metropolitan economies actually diversify. The opportunities for diversification are strongly affected by the initial set of productive capabilities, which makes each situation different. This approach calls for countries, regions, and cities to rethink their strategies, organizations, and priorities as they charge ahead.
