Do technology spillovers matter for growth?

No 199915, CCSO Working Papers from University of Groningen, CCSO Centre for Economic Research

Abstract: This paper attempts to explain the growth of labour productivity by (inter)national spillovers from R&D and patenting. We develop a model that is tested for Germany, France, the United Kingdom and the United States of America using a new set of panel data for the period 1955 until 1991. The results indicate that domestic R&D has an indirect and, for Germany, a positive impact on productivity growth.
