22 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nations and Households in Economic Growth: Essays in Honor of Moses Abramovitz is a collection of papers that reflect the broad sweep of Moses Abramovitz's interests within the disciplines of economics and economic history.

This part also deals with the mechanisms of economic-demographic interdependence and their bearing particularly upon "long swings in the rate of growth.

Heart of darkness : modeling public-private funding interactions inside the R & D black box by Paul A David( )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is a first step toward closing the analytical gap in the extensive literature on the results of interactions between public and private R & D expenditures, and their joint effects on the economy. Econometric studies in this area report a plethora of sometimes confusing and frequently contradictory estimates of the response of company financed R & D to changes in the level and nature of public R & D expenditure, but the necessary theoretical framework within which the empirical results can be interpreted is seldom provided. A major cause of inconsistencies' in the empirical literature is the failure to recognize key differences among the various policy experiments' being considered depending upon the economy in which they are embedded, and the type of public sector R & D spending that is contemplated. Using a simple, stylized structural model, we identify the main channels of impact of public R & D. We thus can characterize the various effects, distinguishing between short-run and long-run impacts that would show up in simple regression analyses of nominal public and private R & D expenditure variables. Within the context of our simple model it is possible to offer interpretations that shed light on recent cross-section and panel data findings at both high (i.e. national) and low (specific technology area) levels of aggregation
Is public R & D a complement or substitute for private R & D? : a review of the econometric evidence by Paul A David( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is public R & D spending complementary and thus "additional" to private R & D spending, or does it substitute for and tend to "crowd out" private R & D? Conflicting answers are given to this question. We survey the body of available economectric evidence accumulated over the past 35 years. A framework for analysis of the problem i is developed to help organize and summarize the findings of econometric studies based on time series and cross-section data from various levels of aggregation (laboratory, firm, industry, country). The findings overall are ambivalent and the existing literature as as a whole is subject to the criticim that the nature of the "experiment(s)" that the investigators envisage is not adequately specified. We conclude by offering suggestions for improving future empirical research on this issue

Information disclosure and the economics of science and technology by Partha Dasgupta( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper takes an information-theoretic approach to the economics of science, extending Arrow's pioneering (1962) analysis of the allocation of resources for industrial research and invention. It addresses the questions: is there a valid economic distinction between scientific and technological research, and if there is, what implications may this have for public policy? A brief review points to deficiencies in several of the criteria proposed for distinguishing "scientific" from "technological" research, such as the degree of generality, abstractness, or practicality of the knowledge sought, or the source of the financial support. We suggest a primary differentiation arises between science and technology conceived as social constructions, and is manifested in the greater urgency shown by the "scientific" community towards the disclosure of newly acquired information. Scientists, qua scientists, may be thought to be devoted to the growth of the stock of knowledge as a public consumption good, whereas the technological community is concerned with the flow of rents that private parties derive from discoveries and inventions. The role of priority as a basis for allocating rewards among scientists, its compatibility with the norm of disclosure, and the ambiguous status of patent systems, are reconsidered from this perspective. Certain ineluctable conflicts between the goals of the two research communities point to the persisting economic need for public subsidies to sustain the scientific attitude

Tragedy of the public knowledge "Commons"? : global science, intellectual property and the digital technology boomerang by Paul A David( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radical legal innovations in intellectual property protection have been introduced by the little noticed European Database Directive of March 1996. This initiative, part of the larger institutional transformations initiated in response to the economic ramifications of rapid progress in digital information technologies, poses numerous contentious issues in law and economics. These are likely to create ambiguities for business and non-profit activities in this area for years to come, and the terms on which those issues are resolved will materially affect the costs and organizational feasibility of scientific projects that are of global reach and significance. This is the case especially in fields such as geology, oceanography and climatology, which depend heavily upon the collection, management and analysis of large volumes of observational data that cannot be regenerated. More generally the conduct of open, collaborative science - along with many of the benefits that flow from it for the developed and the developing economies alike - may be seriously jeopardized by the consequences of the new database protections. This raises the spectre of a new and different "tragedy of the commons," one created by continuing the unbalanced pressure to extract greater economic rents by means of controlling access to information. "Over-fencing," which is to say, the erection of artificial cost barriers to the production of reliable public knowledge by means of reliable public knowledge, threatens the future of "the public knowledge commons" that historically has proved critically important for rapid advance in science and technology. The paper sets out the economic case for the effectiveness of open, collaborative research, and the forces behind the recent, countervailing rush to strengthen and expand the scope of intellectual property rights protection

Subsidisation vs information provision as instruments of technology policy by Paul A David( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the aims of government policy has been to speed up the diffusion of new technologies. This aim has been pursued largely by policies aimed at improving information about the technology or by subsidising the purchase of new technology. In this paper we construct a simple diffusion model that integrates the two dominant themes in the literature, one stressing learning and the other stressing differences between potential adopters. We investigate the impact of learning and subsidy policies on the diffusion path and the welfare implications of these policies. It is argued that the market structure of the industry supplying the new technology is a key factor determining the impacts of the policies. It should therefore be considered when choosing whether government should intervene and if so, what instruments should be used
