The work of the university by Richard C Levin( Book )
9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This engaging collection of speeches and essays, published on the occasion of Richard C. Levin's tenth anniversary as president of Yale University, reflects both the range of his intellectual passions and the depth of his insight into the work of the university. By turns analytical, reflective, and exhortatory, Levin explores what it means to be a world-class university, how the university intersects with local and global communities, and why a liberal education matters. He offers personal recollections of schools, teachers, and traditions of particular importance in his own life. And, returning to his roots as a professor of economics, he discusses the competitiveness of American industry and the relations between the market economy and American democracy. Throughout these writings Levin illuminates and inspires. Always his affection for the university shines through. Whether greeting incoming freshmen, meditating on September 11, remembering an intellectual hero, saluting graduating seniors, addressing the League of Women Voters, or celebrating Yale's Tercentennial, Levin, by example, shows what a liberal education can achieve."--Publisher description

Cost-reducing and demand-creating R & D with spillovers by Richard C Levin( Book )
7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper analyzes R & D policies when the returns to cost-reducing and demand-creating R & D are imperfectly appropriable and market structure is endogenous. Previous characterizations of appropriability are generalized to permit the possibility that own and rival R & D are imperfect substitutes. We also describe how. equilibrium expenditures on process and product R & D, as well as equilibrium market structure, depend on technological opportunities and spillovers. In contrast to previous work, diminished appropriability does not necessarily reduce R & D expenditures. For example, under some conditions, an increase in the extent of process (product) spillovers will lead to an increase in product (process) R & D. We estimate several variants of the model using manufacturing line of business data and data from a survey of R & D executives
Firm size and R & D intensity : a re-examination by Wesley M Cohen( Book )
5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: Using data from the Federal Trade Commission's Line of Business Program and survey measures of technological opportunity and appropriability conditions, this paper finds that overall firm size has a very small, statistically in- significant effect on business unit R & D intensity when either fixed industry effects or measured industry characteristics are taken into account. Business unit size has no effect on the R & D intensity of business units that perform R & D, but it affects the probability of conducting R & D. Business unit and firm size jointly explain less than one per cent of the variance in R & D intensity; industry effects explain nearly half the variance
