Economic Growth And Innovation: A Short Note About The Empirical Evidence
AbstractThis paper explores the links between technical progress and R&D effort in developed countries, a key issue for its economic policy and so open to a permanent debate. In spite of notable advances in the economic growth theory, bringing innovation to a central place, and the spread of empirical contrasts confirming its central hypothesis and widening this analytical field, the factors that transform R&D effort in innovation and then in productivity gains are not well known yet. In this paper some hypothesis are formulated in face to the more recent data.
