However, each project is undertake at an efficient level of effort.//En este ensayo se estudia una carrera estocástica de patentes en las que se permite que las empresas emprendan varios proyectos orientados hacia la misma innovación. El resultado principal del estudio es que la cartera de los proyectos en el mercado no es invariable al numero de empresas a un juego de cronología. Este resultado tiene también algunas consecuencias para la eficiencia del producto en el mercado. El estudio revela que el mercado emprende un número de proyectos mayor que el que sería socialmente conveniente. Sin embargo, cada proyecto se emprende a un nivel de esfuerzo eficiente.
