R&D policy in Israel : an overview and reassessment by Manuel Trajtenberg( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
The goal of this paper is to provide an overview of R&D policy in Israel, and critically examine the policies currently in place as well as proposals to change them. We review in Part I the various programs of the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) of the Ministry of Industry and Trade in Israel, followed by a discussion of studies on the impact of OCS support, and an overview of the rise of the High-Tech sector in Israel with the aid patent data. Part II examines outstanding policy issues and suggestions for reform. It opens with a discussion of allocation schemes for the OCS Grants Program in view of a rigid budget constraint, and an assessment of possible departures from neutrality.' We then examine the payback system, the conditionality of production in Israel, the Magnet' program for the support of generic R&D, and related issues. Next we review the difficulties in setting a policy target for R&D spending, and lastly we ask whether government policy should perhaps be aimed also at the supply side (of the market for R&D personnel), rather than just keep subsidizing the demand side. Clearly, these policy issues are of relevance not just for Israel but for any economy contemplating active government involvement in R&D

Quantitative implications of the home bias : foreign underinvestment, domestic oversaving, and corrective taxation by Assaf Razin( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Abstract: There is strong evidence about a home-court advantage in international portfolio" investment. One explanation for the bias is an information asymmetry between domestic and" foreign investors about the economic performance of domestic firms. This asymmetry causes" two types of distortions: an aggregate production inefficiency and a production-consumption" inefficiency, leading to foreign underinvestment and domestic oversaving respectively. Such" market failures are found to be quite severe, slightly more so with equity flows than with debt" flows. These inefficiencies can nonetheless be corrected by a mix of tax-subsidy instruments consisting of taxes on corporate income and on the capital incomes of both residents and" nonresidents. When only a partial set of instruments is available, however each tax instrument can change radically and may even be reversed although the welfare gains" can be fairly substantial and sometimes close to the first best optimum. This partial set of" instruments appears to be more effective in handling the market failure in the case of equity" flows than in the case of debt flows

Channeling domestic savings into productive investment under asymmetric information : the essential role of foreign direct investment by Assaf Razin( Book )
2 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Foreign direct investment (FDI) is observed to be a predominant form of capital flows to low and middle income countries with insufficiently developed capital markets. This paper analyzes the problem of channeling domestic savings into productive investment in the presence of asymmetric information between the managing owners of firms and other portfolio stakeholders. We emphasize the crucial role played by FDI in sustaining equity-financed capital investment for economies plagued by such information problems. Similar problems also exist for foreign portfolio debt flows. The paper identifies how, in the presence of information asymmetry, different capital market structures may lead to foreign over- or under-investment and to domestic under- or over-saving, and thus to inefficient equilibria. We show how corrective tax-subsidy policies consisting of taxes on corporate income and the capital incomes of both residents and nonresidents can restore efficiency

Outsourcing versus FDI in industry equilibrium by Gene M Grossman( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Abstract: We study the determinants of the extent of outsourcing and of direct foreign investment in an industry in which producers need specialized components. Potential suppliers must make a relationship-specific investment in order to serve each prospective customer. Such investments are governed by imperfect contracts. A final-good producer can manufacture components for itself, but the per-unit cost is higher than for specialized suppliers. We consider how the size of the cost differential, the extent of contractual incompleteness, the size of the industry, and the relative wage rate affect the organization of industry production
