Most business people think of economics in terms of growth, interest rates, and inflation. This book is unique in that it focuses on the economic impact of knowledge-based growth in order to provide business people with a bigger picture of the knowledge management case for action with their organizations.

Unlike the companies in the previous examples, it isn’t trying to fix the basics—which are already in good shape—but instead seeks to improve its costs and revenues by using more sophisticated levers, such as advanced analytics to raise R&D productivity, or advanced segmentation to identify priority customers.

This paper searches for the determinants of government-funded R&D. The goal is to disentangle whether the efficiency considerations overwhelmingly emphasized by the theoretical literature are indeed the main driving force behind public R&D expenditures.

Another goal of the paper is to assess whether other types of innovation policy such as the degree of patent protection can have. Our measures of productivity refer to the R&D process (e.g. attrition rates, phase durations), rather than to R&D expenditures [20] [21][22]. This allows us to focus on a comprehensive data set of.

Since the s, R&D productivity has been declining relentlessly. Roughly in keeping with Eroom’s law (Moore’s law in reverse), the number of drug approvals per inflation-adjusted dollar invested in R&D has halved every nine years.

First, further work is required to clarify whether different R&D types such as privately-funded versus publicly-funded business R&D, intramural versus extramural R&D, basic versus applied R&D, etc. are complements or substitutes; and whether the productivity effects of R&D are subject to scale effects.
