Cameron, Gavin, Proudman, James and Redding, Stephen (1999) Productivity growth, convergence, and trade in a panel of manufacturing industries. 428. Centre for Economic Performance, London School of Economics and Political Science, London, UK.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper analyses the determinants of productivity growth in a panel of UK manufacturing industries. Two potential sources of productivity growth are identified: domestic innovation and technology transfer from a frontier economy. We examine the roles played by R & D expenditure and international trade in explaining each source of productivity growth. R & D expenditure is found to raise the domestic rate of innovation, while international trade facilitates the transfer of technologies to the non-frontier economy.
