Measuring the Returns to R&D Bronwyn H. Hall, Jacques Mairesse, and Pierre Mohnen 1. Introduction Returns to investments in R&D and other innovation assets are a subject of considerable interest to accountants, firm managers, policy makers, and economists in general.

The reason is obvious. See Ehrenberg () for a summary of the main studies on higher education as well as econometric problems facing researchers, and Psacharopoulos and Patrinos () on the study of returns to.

This chapter presents an exposition of econometric methods for modeling producer behavior. The objective of econometric modeling is to determine the nature of substitution among inputs, the character of differences in technology, and the role of economies of by: Increasing returns to scale are present in general and for each and every port.

A scope analysis indicates that port specialisation is not appropriate from the viewpoint of infrastructure. View. Econometric cost functions are estimated to study the behaviour of aggregate costs in relation to the aggregate output level (economies of scale) and output mix (economies of scope).

The aggregate cost function also allows one to estimate the changes in productive efficiency over time. “Bell System Productivity Study, ,” Economic Analysis Section, AT&T, Chap “Econometric Estimation and Forecasting of Freight Demand,” Parts I and II, Chapters 2 and 3 of Studies on the Demand for Freight Transportation, Vol.

I, Mathematica, In principle, the econometric approach to estimating the aggregate or social returns to R&D offers a simpler and more comprehensive way of measuring these returns. It usually involves the inclusion of an aggregate economy-wide R&D stock in the usual TFP growth by: The various DEA models are developed as nonparametric alternatives to the econometric models.

Apart from the standard fare consisting of the basic input- and output-oriented DEA models formulated by Charnes, Cooper, and Rhodes, and Banker, Charnes, and Cooper, the book covers developments such as the directional distance function, free disposal Author: Subhash C.

Ray. Nerlove formulated returns to scale as a function of output with the formula r(y) = 1/(a + Blog y), rather than the correct formula, r(y) = l/(a+og y) which results in overestimation of scale effect.

Based on the correct formula the estimates of the degree of returns to scale have turned out to be, and for five. ‘A valuable textbook for a graduate course in the econometrics of financial modelling.’ Svend Hylleberg Source: The Economic Journal ‘A useful bridge between finance and the latest research in Cited by: A Stochastic Frontier Approach.

May, Since public spending in developing countries amounts to significant shares of GDP, there is a compelling interest in measuring and understanding (in)efficiency in the pursuit of the government’s objectives Recent work done in the World Bank analyzes the efficiency of attainment of these.

EMPIRICAL LITERATURE The relationship between trade openness and growth is a highly debated topic in the growth and development literature, yet this issue is far from being is a long history of research, both theoretical and empirical, that provides at least an answer to the question: does openness to trade result in the growth of output (say, GDP).

Note that we allow the intercept term to vary across sectors and years. As reported in column 1 of Table 3, our estimate of b 1 indicates that COMPUTER CAPITAL is correlated with a statistically significant increase in OUTPUT.

The second econometric study is that of Just (), which nested Nerlove’s () adaptive expectations model. Nerlove’s model of adaptive expectations is rejected in favor of an expanded adaptive risk model implying that crop supplies fall in response to increased by: Generally, the topological analysis is invariant under any continuous transformation of the system (Figure 1B) such as increasing, decreasing, rotating, reflecting, or stretching the physical scale of a system.

We utilize the input oriented constant (CRS) and variable (VRS) returns to scale data efficiency analysis models to evaluate the efficiency of firms. Scale efficiency and the respective types of returns to scale have been examined by using DEA models with ratio inputs and by: George J. Stigler, PhD'38 ( ), received the prize for "seminal studies of industrial structures, functioning of markets and causes and effects of public regulation." The study of market processes and industry structure is called Industrial Organization, and Stigler's applied, empirical orientation improved understanding of the entire spectrum from pure competition to monopoly.

Internal Scale Economies. Internal increasing returns to scale are well documented in manufacturing, based on cost and value-added data, engineering estimates, and trade data and markups.

Table 1 summarizes the stylized findings in the literature. Internal scale economies range from negligible among light industries to high among heavy and high Cited by: the system, temporarily assume that all values of the {𝜀t } sequence are zero.

Models featuring increasing returns to scale in at least one factor of production have been used to study two separate phenomena: (1) multiplicity of self-fulfilling rational expectations equilibria (i.e. sunspots), and (2) production schedules that optimally feature bunching.

Nowadays applied work in business and economics requires a solid understanding of econometric methods to support decision-making. Combining a solid exposition of econometric methods with an application-oriented approach, this rigorous textbook provides students with a working understanding and hands-on experience of current econometrics.
