Growth and Ideas

Charles Jones ()

No 10767, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: Ideas are different from nearly all other economic goods in that they are nonrivalrous. This nonrivalry implies that production possibilities are likely to be characterized by increasing returns to scale, an insight that has profound implications for economic growth. The purpose of this chapter is to explore these implications.
