DELTA Working Papers from DELTA (Ecole normale supérieure)
This paper considers a dynamic North South model of international trade and innovations in which firms can endogenously bias the direction of technological change. We show that, when there is a differential degree of protection of property rights between the two regions, innovating firms face a trade off between delocalization in South and more secure property rights in North.
