External vs. internal learning-by-doing in an R&D based growth model
AbstractIn an economy where growth is determined by the interaction of R&D and learning-by-doing (LBD), changes of factors that stimulate either one of these activities affect growth differently than in an economy where growth is determined by either R&D or LBD alone. In particular, when firms anticipate that R&D for new types of goods threatens the future efficiency gains which they derive from LBD, a more efficient learning process or a larger workforce might reduce rather than increase the growth rate on a balanced growth path.
