In a recent paper in this Review, Edwin Mansfield illustrated empirically (using a sample of ten petroleum and six chemical firms) that firm rates of productivity change are related to the amount of companyfinanced basic research performed, certeris paribus. In this note additional evidence is presented which is supportive of Mansfield's findings. This analysis is based on a sample of fifty- one major manufacturing firms active in R&D: it is unique in that the impacts of company… Expand
R&D and productivity in OECD firms and industries: A hierarchical meta-regression analysis ☆
The relationship between RD (ii) residual heterogeneity remains high among firm-level estimates even after controlling for moderating factors; (iii) firm-level rates of return and within-industryExpand
Technological spillovers and productivity in Italian manufacturing firms
We study whether a firm’s total factor productivity dynamics is positively influenced by its own R&D activity and by the technological spillovers generated at the intra- and inter-sectorial level.Expand
R&D and Productivity in OECD Firms and Industries: A Hierarchical Meta-Regression Analysis
Effects of R&D investment on frim/industry productivity have been investigated widely thanks to pioneering contributions by Zvi Griliches and others in late 1970s and early 1980s. We aim to establishExpand

Basic Innovation and Firm Performance
I study the effects of basic and applied innovation on a firm's market value and total factor productivity for a panel of U.S. manufacturing firms. Basicness of innovation is measured by the index ofExpand
