TY - JOUR TI - Limits of development and status of co-operation in Serbia AU - Drakulić Danica JN - Privredna izgradnja PY - 2005 VL - 48 IS - 1-2 SP - 71 EP - 79 PT- Article AB- The work deals with competition and cooperation as mutually conditioned and complementary, with the framework of the most important changes in the world. It also emphasizes their strategic and dynamic character. In contemporary conditions, the economy functions with the possibilities of choices of some kinds of regulative mechanisms. One is market mechanism, the other one is the willing cooperation, the third is of the administrative-hierarchical character. In the situation when the other mechanisms are unacceptable or insufficient efficient, cooperation is considered to be an optimal mechanism both in developmental and cultural sense. Cooperation should provide a contribution to the economic development, with a view of building a competitive economy and competent institutional segment.
