Technological Imports and Technological Effort: An Analysis of Their Determinants in Brazilian Firms
Logit analysis is employed to measure the effect of selected variables on the probability that a firm (1) purchases imported technology, (2) engages in research and development, and (3) controls the quality of its production. Analysis of 4,342 industrial establishments shows these technological activities to share common determinants: all increase significantly with foreign ownership, exports, and firm size. Other variables, including state ownership, profits, and effective protection, affect only some activities. Imports of technology have a positive effect on technological effort and quality control.
