Vertical linkages and innovation by Gamal Atallah( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"It has long been suspected that the organization and ownership of firms could affect the innovation performance of industries in Canada by influencing economic incentives to generate new products and processes. This paper provides a general overview of the theoretical and empirical literature on the relationship between the organization of firms and industries and their performance in terms of innovation. To this end, the paper examines the evidence of vertical linkages across the supply chain from the points of view of innovation, research and development collaboration, and knowledge flows. In doing so, the paper reviews the evidence on the effects of ownership and concentration, the importance of the nature of the vertical relationship between upstream and downstream firms, and the role played by appropriability and knowledge spillovers in the organization for the performance of innovation activities, among others. The paper also looks at the role of multinationals and the extent to which this type of organization benefits host countries in terms of innovation activities"--Document
Unbalanced industry demand and supply shifts implications for economic growth in Canada and the United States by Anik Dufour( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"This paper examines industry contributions to aggregate output and labour productivity growth in Canada and the United States over the periond 1981-2000, using a framework consistent with the real value concept of real GDP in the chained-Fisher index. It distinguishes between the contribution resulting from changes in an industry's output level and the contribution resulting from changes in its output price. This allows one further to determine whether the observed changes in the industry's output and price levels result from a net increase (decrease) in the demand for or the supply of the industry's product.--Document
Research and development composition and labour productivity growth in 16 OECD countries by Ram Acharya( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
The objective of this paper is to evaluate empirically the contribution of various components of R & D expenditure to promoting economic growth across a set of countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). More specifically, the authors investigate the effectiveness of private and public R & D expenditures in raising labor productivity in developed countries; whether government intramural R & D and higher education R & D have similar effects on the performance as public R & D; whether money spent on R & D has the same effect regardless of sector; and whether the R & D intensity in the sector or the size of sector (or both) matter for overall labor productivity growth.--Includes text from document

What explains the Canada-U.S. TFP gap? by P. Someshwar Rao( Book )

Productivity, business practices and advanced technologies in the Canadian manufacturing sector by Anik Dufour( file )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Canada, like most other Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, experienced a resurgence in labour productivitiy growth in the second half of the 1990s, apparently associated with the increased use of information technologies (IT). Costs for IT related equipment plunged and IT investment surged. Some argue, however, that the full benefits of new technologies are only recognized when these go together with investments in new business practices. This paper studies the mutually reinforcing effects on firm level productivity of certain combinations of information technologies and business practices, using a linked data set from the 1998 Survey of Advanced Technology in Canadian Manufacturing and the Annual Survey of Manufacturing.--Document

Investment restrictions in the financial services sector by Edwin H Neave( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This paper assesses the formal and informal characteristics of Canada's policies toward foreign direct investment (FDI) in financial services. The author first considers customary approaches such as calculating restrictiveness scores and estimating economic impact with the aid of regression and simulation analyses. He then surveys Canada's current legislative environment regarding the financial services industry, finding that in the past the most important restrictions have affected the banking industry. To demonstrate the differential effects of past policies, the paper compares and contrasts banking and insurance, reporting the Koyama-Golub restrictiveness scores and interpreting them in the light of the two industries' industrial organization.--Document
