About this product
- DescriptionThe ecomic importance of invative activity brings with it an active debate on the effect of public policy on the invation process. This annual series, sponsored by the National Bureau of Ecomic Research, brings the work of leading academic researchers to the broader policy community, presenting papers that demonstrate the role that ecomic theory and empirical analysis can play in evaluating policy. Volume 7 considers such topics as the apparent productivity decline in the pharmaceutical industry; the effect of patents on both the scientific commons and cumulative discovery; the flow of new Ph.D.s into industry; a new mechanism to create ecomic incentives for producers of digital goods that both stimulates invation and encourages widespread use; and a formal analytical structure for a science of crisis management.
