Time-to-build obsolescence and the technological paradox
The paper focusses on the technological paradox. To analyze the possible temporary negative e ect of an innovation, we make use of a ow representation of production. Our aim is to show that such phenomenon can be justi ed by a simple property of the production process: in real time costs strictly come before proceeds.Moving in the same direction of Amendola (1974), we analyze the obsolescence effect induced by a rise in the interest rate. Furthermore, we analyze the role of capital market stickiness on the timing of the technological paradox and on the distribution of the obsolescence e ect among the different stages of a vertical integrated production system.
