Innovation and the Sectoral
This paper examines the effects of the innovations used in seventy-nine three-digit U.K. industries, 1976-79, on productivity growth. A time pattern of effects is identified lasting at least eleven years and possibly as long as sixteen. Innovations used in particular sectors are traced back to the producing sectors from which they originated, the result suggesting that engineering (especially electronics and electrical engineering) innovations have the largest impact on users' productivity. Finally, only very small spillover effects were identified flowing from adjacent using or producing sectors. Copyright 1991 by Royal Economic Society.
