Abstract

Este trabajo analiza el impacto de la innovación, tanto doméstica como extranjera, sobre la evolución de la Productividad Total de los Factores (PTF) de la economía española en la segunda mitad del siglo XX. Para ello se estima una versión revisada de la especificación empírica de Coe y Helpman (1995), en la que el stock de conocimiento doméstico y extranjero se aproximan a partir de datos de gasto en I+D. Además, también controlamos por la evolución del capital humano. Nuestros resultados sugieren que la entrada de tecnología extranjera ha tenido un impacto positivo y significativo sobre la evolución de la PTF en España, siendo este impacto superior al efecto de la innovación doméstica. El análisis también concede un papel destacado a la inversión en capital humano como determinante de la evolución de la PTF.
