R & D and productivity the econometric evidence by Zvi Griliches( file )
11 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,180 libraries worldwide
Zvi Griliches, a world-renowned scholar and a pioneer in the field of productivity growth, has compiled in a single volume his work on research and development (R&D) and productivity. Griliches addresses the relationship between R&D and productivity, one of the most complex yet vital issues in today's business world. Using econometric techniques, he establishes this connection and measures its magnitude for firm-, industry-, and economy-level data. Several of these papers incorporate French and Japanese productivity data to provide a comparative perspective, and one new paper outlines future directions for productivity research. A comprehensive introduction puts the papers in the context of Griliches's distinguished body of work

Output measurement in the service sectors by Zvi Griliches( Book )
15 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 654 libraries worldwide
Is the fall in overall productivity growth in the United States and other developed countries related to the rising share of the service sectors in the economy? Since services represent well over half of the U.S. gross national product, it is also important to ask whether these sectors have had a slow rate of growth, as this would act as a major drag on the productivity growth of the overall economy and on its competitive performance. In this timely volume, leading experts from government and academia argue that faulty statistics have prevented a clear understanding of these issues

R&D, education, and productivity : a retrospective by Zvi Griliches( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 325 libraries worldwide
"Zvi Griliches was a modern master of empirical economics. In this short book, he recounts what he and others have learned about the sources of economic growth, conveying along the way how he viewed research problems. For Griliches, economic theorizing without measurement is merely the fashioning of parables, but measurement without theory is blind. Judgment enables one to strike the right balance."--BOOK JACKET

Empirical patterns of firm growth and R & D investment : a quality ladder model interpretation by Tor Jakob Klette( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 124 libraries worldwide
We present a model of endogenous firm growth with R & D investment and innovation as the engine of growth. The objective of our analysis is to present a framework that can be used for microeconometric analysis of firm performance in high-tech industries. The model for firm growth is a partial equilibrium model drawing on the quality ladder models in the macro growth literature, but also on the literature on patent races and the discrete choice models of product differentiation. We examine to what extent the assumptions and the empirical content of our model are consistent with the findings that have emerged from empirical studies of growth, productivity, R & D and patenting at the firm level. The analysis shows that the model fits well empirical patterns such as (i) a skewed size distribution of firms with persistent differences in firm sizes, (ii) firm growth (roughly) independent of firm size (the so-called Gibrat's law) and (iii) R & D investment proportional to sales, as well as a number of other empirical patterns
Education, human capital, and growth : a personal perspective by Zvi Griliches( Book )
12 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
This paper reviews the literature on the relationship of economic growth to the education levels of the labor force. The emphasis is on Ben-Porath's contribution to some of the issues in this field: the endogeneity of schooling, the role of the public sector as an àbsorber' of educated labor, and the importance of personal human capital created by investments in reputation and personal relationships, the F-connection
Production functions : the search for identification by Zvi Griliches( Book )
14 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 91 libraries worldwide
Some aspects of the econometric estimation of production functions are discussed, focussing primarily on the issue of simultaneity and reviewing the stream of criticisms of Douglas' work and the response to it. We look in particular at the work that uses panel data on micro data for plants or firms and at some more recent multi-equation extensions of it. We find that researchers, in trying to evade the simultaneity problem, have shifted to the use of thinner and thinner slices of data, exacerbating thereby other problems and misspecifications. We describe the need for better data, especially on product prices at the individual observation level and on relevant cost and demand shifters, and for better behavioral theories which would encompass the large amount of heterogeneity observed at the micro level

Research productivity in a system of universities by James D Adams( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 84 libraries worldwide
The focus of this paper is the research performance of a system of universi- ties and sciences. Using data from the US during the 1980s we study the relationship between research output and R & D in 8 different fields of science We begin at the field level by examining the time series behavior of outputs measured by papers and citations in relation to R & D. At this level we find approximate parity between growth rates of papers and citations and the growth rate of R & D, except mathematics and agriculture, which diverge from parity in opposite directions, suggesting the predominance of a CRS production process for new scientific results. We then conduct an analysis at the university and field using small samples of leading U.S. research universities. We find returns to R & D are diminishing in nearly every case. One explanation points to the importance of research spillovers between universities and fields which are excluded at the university level but not at the system level, another is that errors in R & D are more important at the university level. The errors arise from misclassification of R & D by university and field. These explana- tions emphasize the relevance of research spillovers and of the system-wide aspects of university research, and pinpoint the sources of failings of current data on science resource. In addition we explore some efficiency aspects of the university system. Our findings suggest that leading schools have lower average and marginal costs of performing research than lesser institutions, and that leading institutions have a comparative advantage at generating higher quality, more highly cited research. In our comparisons of private and public institutions the results are not as one-sided, yet they suggest that private schools have a comparative advantage at generating more highly cited research
Measuring science : an exploration by James D Adams( Book )
9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
This paper examines available U.S. data on academic R & D expenditures and the number of papers published and the number of citations to these papers as possible measures of òutput' of this enterprise. We look at these numbers for science and engineering as a whole, for 5 selected major fields, and at the individual university-field level. The published data in Science and Engineering Indicators imply sharply diminishing returns to academic R & D using published papers as a òutput' measure. These data are problematic. Using a newer set of data on papers and citations, based on an èxpanding' set changes the picture drastically, eliminating seemingly diminishing returns but raising the question of why input prices of academic R & D are rising so much faster than either the GDP deflator or the implicit R & D deflator in industry. A production function analysis of such data indicates significant diminishing returns to òwn' R & D, with the R & D coefficients hovering around 0.5 for estimates with paper numbers as the dependent variable and around 0.6 if total citations are used. When we substitute scientists and engineers in place of R & D as the right hand side variables, the coefficient on papers rises from 0.5 to 0.8, and the coefficient on citations rises from 0.6 to 0.9, indicating systematic measurement problems with R & D as the sole input into the production of scientific output. But allowing for individual university-field effects drives these numbers down below unity. Since in the aggregate both paper numbers and citations are growing as fast or faster than R & D, this can be seen as leaving a major, yet unmeasured role, for the contribution of spill- overs from other fields, other universities, and other countries
