Subsidizing the R&D Expenditures for a Monopoly Firm: Advice for NIST
AbstractThe Advanced Technology Program (ATP) of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) subsidizes the R&D expenditure of large single firms at a maximum rate of 40%. The theoretical analysis herein of a monopoly innovator suggests that this subsidy rate is about socially optimal when spillovers to other industries are small and only incremental R&D expenditure is subsidized. The optimal subsidy when these two conditions are not met is also discussed.
