Big Push

In international development, a model stating that companies decide whether or not to industrialize their operations based on what they believe other companies will do. Though industrialization is expensive, it can result in a tremendous competitive advantage over companies that do not do so. The big push posits that these facts significantly influence the judgments of companies mulling industrialization. See also: Game theory.
