Abstract

Using a network approach we empirically identify the most critical sectors for 49 different economies. Wholesale trade is dominant for over half the countries, but increasingly R&D activities are taking on an equivalent importance. Recognizing R&D as a critical sector as countries develop urges caution against disinvesting in this sector.
