Welfare effects of patent protection and productive public services: Why do developing countries prefer weaker patent protection?

Tatsuro Iwaisako ()

Economics Letters, 2013, vol. 118, issue 3, 478-481

Abstract: This paper examines the welfare-maximizing degree of patent protection in a growth model where the engines of economic growth are R&D and public services. The result shows that if public services are small, the welfare-maximizing level of patent protection is weaker.
