Optimal growth policy: The role of skill heterogeneity

Volker Grossmann () and Thomas Steger ()

No 117, Working Papers from University of Leipzig, Faculty of Economics and Management Science

Abstract: A simple semi-endogenous growth model is employed to show that optimal subsidization of both R&D and capital costs is independent of the distribution of R&D skills in the workforce. This holds despite the empirically supported fact that a higher R&D subsidy rate raises wages of R&D workers.
