Abstract

Economists have shown that investments in science and technology (S&T) have an important impact on country's economic growth and productivity gains. Nowadays there is no doubt of the importance in providing public funding for S&T activities. Public policies have been oriented to provide incentives for private spending in S&T as a mechanism to enhance productive efficiency. In this regard, fiscal incentives play a crucial role to channel private efforts in research and development (R&D) projects. International experience based on the OECD case, shows that 10% decrease in the User Cost of Capital due to fiscal incentives will increase 1% R&D spending in the short run and might reach a 10% increase in the long run. ********************************************************************** Los economistas han mostrado que las inversiones en ciencia y tecnología tienen un impacto importante sobre las tasas de crecimiento económico y sobre la productividad de un país. Por tal razón hoy pocos países discuten sobre la importancia de destinar recursos públicos a dicha inversión. La agenda de política esta enfocada es a mantener un sistema de ciencia y tecnología e innovación tecnológica donde se estimule la inversión privada y se integre a las políticas públicas. Es en este punto donde los incentivos fiscales han sido cruciales en la generación de recursos privados para la ciencia y la tecnología y la mayoría de países desarrollados y algunos en desarrollo los han implementado como un mecanismo eficiente. La experiencia internacional muestra que en los países de la OCDE por una caída en un 10% del costo del capital en I&D, vía incentivos fiscales, se aumenta las inversiones en este bien en un 1% en el corto plazo y estas inversiones pueden llegar a ser del 10% en el largo plazo.
