Cross-Country R&D and Growth: Variations on a Theme of Mankiw-Romer-Weil
This paper studies how international research and development (R&D) activities contribute to international differences in productivity. Domestic R&D is an important factor of production as are spillovers from foreign research. While cross-country differences in domestic research contribute to international differences in productivity, world research spillovers contribute to narrowing those differences. Furthermore, in the presence of international R&D spillovers, global increasing returns to research exist. This enhances the effect of world research on the growth rates of countries that receive spillovers.
