Innovation and Aggregate Economic Performance

Publiceringsår: 2010
Språk: Engelska
Dokumenttyp: Konferensbidrag


Although the divergence over the last decades between

Europe and USA has drawn much attention, the dispersion of rates of

economic growth is even larger among the countries within Europe.

There is reason to presume that the more successful among the

European countries are those that have set more innovations into

production. This paper exploits the correlation between innovation, as

materialized in new products, and falling relative prices . Our analysis

suggests that major European countries have a low capability for

innovation and is lagging behind USA. A handful of peripheral

Europan countries have been more successful and to some extent also

extend significant innovation to services
