This paper investigates how the details of government actions induce innovation—the overlapping activities of invention, adoption and diffusion, and learning by doing—in benvironmental technology,Q products and processes that either control pollutant emissions or prevent emissions altogether. It applies multiple quantitative and qualitative measures of innovation to a case subject to several btechnology-pushQ and bdemand-pullQ instruments: sulfur dioxide control technology for power plants. The… CONTINUE READING
