Innovation and growth in the global economy by Gene M Grossman ( Book )
23 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in English and held by 799 libraries worldwide
Traditional growth theory emphasizes the incentives for capital accumulation rather than technological progress. Innovation is treated as an exogenous process or a by-product of investment in machine and equipment. The authors develop a unique approach in which innovation is viewed as a deliberate outgrowth of investments in industrial research by forward-looking, profit-seeking agents.

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 361 libraries worldwide
This collection of papers by colleagues and former students celebrates the profound impact that Jagdish Bhagwati has had on the field of international economics over the past three decades. Bhagwati, who is the Arthur Lehman Professor of Economics at Columbia University, has made pathbreaking contributions to the theory of international trade and commercial policy, including immiserizing growth, domestic distortions, economic development, and political economy. His success and influence as a teacher and mentor is widely recognized among students at both MIT and Columbia, and as founder of the Journal of International Economics, he has encouraged research on many questions of theoretical and policy relevance. The political economy of trade policy, Bhagwati's most recent area of interest, is the theme of this collection, which addresses salient topics including market distortions, income distribution, and the political process of policy-making.

International protection of intellectual property by Gene M Grossman ( Book )
18 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 99 libraries worldwide
"We study the incentives that governments have to protect intellectual property in a trading world economy. We consider a world economy with ongoing innovation in two countries that differ in market size, in their capacities for innovation, and in their absolute and comparative advantage in manufacturing. We associate the strength of IPR protection with the duration of a country's patents that are applied with national treatment. After describing the determination of national policies in a non-cooperative regime of patent protection, we ask, Why are patents longer in the North? We also study international patent agreements by deriving the properties of an efficient global regime of patent protection and asking whether harmonization of patent policies is necessary or sufficient for global efficiency"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site.

Outsourcing in a global economy by Gene M Grossman ( Book )
19 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 87 libraries worldwide
"We study the determinants of the location of sub-contracted activity in a general equilibrium model of outsourcing and trade. We model outsourcing as an activity that requires search for a partner and relationship-specific investments that are governed by incomplete contracts. The extent of international outsourcing depends inter alia on the thickness of the domestic and foreign market for input suppliers, the relative cost of searching in each market, the relative cost of customizing inputs, and the nature of the contracting environment in each country"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site.

Managerial incentives and the international organization of production by Gene M Grossman ( Book )
17 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 81 libraries worldwide
We develop a model in which the heterogeneous firms in an industry choose their modes of organization and the location of their subsidiaries or suppliers. We assume that the principals of a firm are constrained in the nature of the contracts they can write with suppliers or employees. Our main result concerns the sorting of firms with different productivity levels into different organizational forms. We use the model to examine the implications of falling trade costs for the relevant prevalence of outsourcing and foreign direct investment.
