Are International R&D Spillovers Trade-related? Analyzing Spillovers among Randomly Matched Trade Partners

  • Wolfgang Keller

    (University of Wisconsin-Madison)

In this paper, I analyze recent findings by Coe and Helpman (1995) of trade-related international R&D spillovers. I show generally that randomly created bilateral trade shares also give rise to large estimated international R&D spillovers; often, in fact, to larger estimated spillover effects which are more precisely estimated than by employing the 'true' bilateral trade shares. This casts some doubt on the earlier results in the literature.
