Paperback. 156 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.4in.This paper develops and estimates a structural model of R and D investment and productivity evolution of manufacturing plants in the Korean electric motor industry from 1991 to 1996. Plant-level decisions for R and D investment, physical capital investment, entry, and exit are developed using a dynamic industry evolution model. Estimates of the structural parameters are used to quantify how a plants productivity is affected by its own R and D and by spillovers from the R and D of its competitors. In contrast to previous R and D studies, which usually investigate a collection of producers from various industries, this paper characterizes how the full set of dynamic decisions by each plant in a single industry interact with its own and its competitors productivity change. This allows the model to provide a detailed set of pathways connecting the plant-level R and D investment, productivity, physical investment, and turnover patterns observed in the data.

About this title:

Synopsis:

This paper develops and estimates a structural model of R&D investment and productivity evolution of manufacturing plants in the Korean electric motor industry from 1991 to 1996. Plant-level decisions for R&D investment, physical capital investment, entry, and exit are developed using a dynamic industry evolution model. Estimates of the structural parameters are used to quantify how a plant's productivity is affected by its own R&D and by spillovers from the R&D of its competitors. In contrast to previous R&D studies, which usually investigate a collection of producers from various industries, this paper characterizes how the full set of dynamic decisions by each plant in a single industry interact with its own and its competitor's productivity change. This allows the model to provide a detailed set of pathways connecting the plant-level R&D investment, productivity, physical investment, and turnover patterns observed in the data.
