Accelerating Innovation: National R&D Subsidies versus Foreign R&D Tax Credits
This paper examines and compares the impact on growth of government’s funding national R&D or providing a tax rate reduction for foreign investment in R&D. In an innovationbased model we show the relation between the costs of these two policies. One meaningful policy implication of our results is that, to accelerate innovation, governments should adopt a tax rate deduction for foreign R&D, rather than subsidizing national R&D, because the former is more economical and effective than the latter.
