Example text

Estimation was done by using a fixed-effects approach for the pooled cross section and time series data set. Using the elasticity of TFP with respect to research investment, one can easily estimate the value of marginal product (additional product value) of research investment (R) as: VMP (R) = b × (V/R) Where, R = the research investment V = the value of the production associated with TFP b = the TFP elasticity of research investment Estimated in the TFP determinant equation above, the benefit stream generated under the assumption that the benefit of investment made in research in period (t – 1) will start generating a benefit after a lag of years at an increasing rate in the beginning, remain constant for a period of time and thereafter decline following the typical inverted ‘V’ shape curve.
