R&D in Developing Countries: What Should Governments Do?

Author

  • Neary, J.P.

Abstract

I consider the implications of recent research for R&D policy in developing countries. Typical new growth models, which assume free entry and no strategic behaviour by R&D producers, are less appropriate for policy guidance than strategic oligopoly models. But the latter have ambiguous implications for targeted R&D subsidies, and caution against the anticompetitive effect of research joint ventures.
