Research and development composition and labour productivity growth in 16 OECD countries by Ram C Acharya( file )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 77 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

Productivity, business practices and advanced technologies in the Canadian manufacturing sector by Anik Dufour( file )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 64 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

Benchmarking structure-conduct-performance indicators of competitive intensity in Canadian industries by Henry Thille( file )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
The notion of competitive intensity is of broad interest to economists and often finds itself the subject of comparisons between different countries. Case in point, in a 2004 survey of Canada, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) concluded that product market competition appeared relatively strong in Canada as compared to other OECD economies. This conclusion was drawn based on the analysis of a number of indicators of competitive intensity, some macroeconomic in nature, others drawn from industrial economics. This paper reviews the type of measures of competitive intensity used by the OECD and others used in empirical industrial economics. Although a broad characterization of stylized facts can be obtained from these measures, the paper argues that such measures are not direct measures of competitive intensity and can be misleading. The paper then discusses a recent empirical framework that pivots around the notion of "toughness of competition."--Document

Impact of FDI restrictions on inward FDI in OECD countries by Madanmohan Ghosh( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
This paper considers the impact of reducing the foreign direct investment (FDI) restrictions on the stock of inward FDI in Canada. It addresses this question in estimating econometric models using data from 23 OECD countries and then investigates how good the results fit for Canada. The authors draw on this research to explore the implications of reducing the barriers to inward FDI in Canada. The rest of the paper is organized as follows: a literature review is provided regarding the determinants of FDI; an expansion on current OECD studies on FDI restrictions; and finally, specification on the regression models, discussion of the estimation methods, and presentation of the econometric results.--Includes text from document
