Too Much of a Good Thing? The Economics of Investment in R&D

Charles Jones () and John Williams ()

Working Papers from Harvard - Institute for International Development

Abstract: Empirical research in the micro productivity literature consistently supports the notion that there is too little R&D. However, the methodology of this literature, based on the neoclassical growth model, is challenged by new growth theory, which emphasizes a richer description of the relationship between R&D and productivity.
