Products, patents and productivity persistence: A DSGE model of endogenous growth

Contents:

Author Info

  • Tom Holden

Abstract

This paper builds a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model of endogenous growth that is capable of generating substantial degrees of endogenous persistence in productivity.� When products go out of patent protection, the rush of entry into their production destroys incentives for process improvements.� Consequently, old production processes are enshrined in industries producing non-protected products, resulting in aggregate productivity persistence.� Our model also generates sizeable delayed movements in productivity in response to preference shocks, providing a form of endogenous news shock.� Finally, if we calibrate our model to match a high aggregate mark-up then we can replicate the negative response of hours to a positive technology shock, even without the inclusion of any frictions.
