Information Industries and Endogenous Growth: Developing Policy Implications
AbstractAccording to contemporary growth theories, growth rates--not just "levels"--might be stimulated by public policy through the selection of the appropriate knowledge-producing sectors. However, it is far from obvious how high-powered growth-inducing sectors can be detected. It seems that no attempt has been made to address this awkward issue. On the basis of the insights afforded by the New Growth Theory and a glimpse of evidence stemming from the information industries, the paper suggests a criterion to detect and (possibly) rank generic inputs on the basis of their potential to generate long-run growth. It concludes by making contact with the "150% Tax Concession" and considering what policy implications may be derived from the endogenous growth approach.
