Abstract

We use a specially designed survey on French firms to provide empirical evidence suggesting that IT adoption is not only influenced by the traditional factors of technology diffusion (rank, stock-order, epidemic effects and organizational practices) but also by localized knowledge spillovers. We make several advances. Firstly, we study the adoption of authentic Information and Communication Technologies while the recent empirical literature has been mainly focused on computer capital stocks or automation tools. Secondly, we construct measures to replace the traditional epidemic effect by different proximity variables. Thirdly, we examine different channels of knowledge transmission among nearby firms, from unintended knowledge spillovers to well-regulated arrangements. Our econometric methodology is designed to deal with potential biases that are encountered when implementing technology adoption equations. In particular, we explicitly deal with the problem of simultaneous technological choices, using bivariate adoption equations.
