The Struggle to Survive in the R&D Sector: Implications for Innovation and Growth

Yuichi Furukawa ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: By allowing for investment activities by research and development (R&D) firms to prevent product obsolescence, we show that if legal patent protection is too strong, a higher R&D subsidy rate delivers insufficient investments for survival in the R&D sector, depressing innovation and growth in the long run.
