Demand-pull and technology-push: What drives the direction of technological change? -- An empirical network-based approach

  title={Demand-pull and technology-push: What drives the direction of technological change? -- An empirical network-based approach},
  author={Kerstin Hotte},
Demand-pull and technology-push are linked to an empirical two-layer network-based on coupled cross-industrial input-output (IO) and patent citation links among 155 4-digit (NAICS) US-industries in 1976-2006 to study the evolution of industry hierarchies and link formation. Both layers co-evolve, but differently: The patent network became denser and increasingly skewed, while market hierarchies are balanced and sluggish in change. Industries became more similar by patent citations, but less by… Expand


Bernard et al
  • [2006] provided an own concordance table which is largely consistent with the concordance provided by the US Census Bureau used before (see SI.1.1). To be consistent with the steps above, I use the US Census Bureau concordance for the transformation. This enables me to map the SIC codes to 486 diffe

Innovation network
The strength and stable importance of the innovation network is described by showing how past innovations can predict future innovations in other fields over 10-y horizons and is consistent with the idea that when there is more past upstream innovation for a particular technology class to build on, then that technology class innovates more.

Input Diffusion and the Evolution of Production Networks
It is shown that initial network proximity of a sector in 1967 significantly increases the likelihood of adoption throughout the subsequent four decades, and U.S. firms are significantly more likely to develop new input linkages among their suppliers’ network neighborhood. Expand

Technology Network, Innovation And Growth
This paper develops a multi-sector endogenous growth model which embeds a technology network that captures heterogeneous intersectoral knowledge spillovers. Each sector serves both as a distributorExpand
Technology flows between sectors and their impact on large-scale firms
In this article we highlight the importance of technology flows between sectors and their impact on the labour productivity of large-scale corporations. Based on theoretical considerations, weExpand
