About the Author
Dr. Philip M. Parker is the Chaired Professor of Management Science at INSEAD where he has taught courses on multivariate statistics and global competitive strategy since 1988. He has also taught courses at MIT, Stanford University, Harvard University, UCLA, UCSD, and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He is the author of six books on the economic convergence of nations. These books introduce the notion of “physioeconomics” which foresees a lack of global convergence in economic behaviors due to physiological and physiographic forces. His latest book is "Physioeconomics: The Basis for Long-Run Economic Growth" (MIT Press 2000). He has also published numerous articles in academic journals, including The Rand Journal of Economics, Marketing Science, the Journal of International Business Studies, Technological Forecasting and Social Change, International Journal of Forecasting, the European Management Journal, the European Journal of Operational Research, Journal of Marketing, International Journal of Research in Marketing, and Journal of Marketing Research. He is also on the editorial boards of several academic journals. Dr. Parker received his Ph.D. in Business Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and has Masters degrees in Finance and Banking (University of Aix-Marseille) and Managerial Economics (Wharton). His undergraduate degrees are in mathematics, biology and economics (minor in aeronautical engineering). He has consulted and/or taught courses in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, North America and Europe.

About this Series
This series was created for international firms who rely on foreign export markets for a substantial portion of their business or who might be threatened by foreign trade competition. The estimates given in this report were created using a methodology developed by and under the direct supervision of Professor Philip M. Parker, the Chaired Professor of Management Science, at INSEAD. The methodology, relying on historical figures of economic growth and trade flows, estimates the market shares of some 150 countries for over 500 industrial or product categories. The figures should be seen as market estimates, as opposed to historical records, as these are projected for the current year of trade.
