Measuring Technology Diffusion and the International Sources of Growth
We describe a methodology to infer the extent of international technology diffusion and to decompose the sources of growth by nation. We compare the results from alternative implementation: of this methodology. A major finding is that the extent of international diffusion is substantial, with the United States contributing between a quarter to a half of the productivity growth in each of the other major research economies. Nevertheless, innovations do have a greater impact at home than abroad. For example. domestic innovations account for 60 to 70 per cent of U.S. growth.
