We disentangle the demand and productivity effects of public policy on industrial location (Commendatore, Kubin and Petraglia 2008, 2009) in a Footloose Capital model (Martin and Rogers 1995) with publicly financed R&D activities. Results are obtained under alternative assumptions on the intensity of knowledge spillovers (KS). New ideas generated in the R&D sector are alternatively assumed to be beneficial to all firms regardless of their location (per-fectly global KS), to local firms only (perfectly local KS) or to local firms to a higher extent than to foreign ones (partially local KS). Re-sults on both local dynamics around the interior and boundary fixed points and their global stability properties are obtained.

Abstract

We disentangle the demand and productivity effects of public policy on industrial location (Commendatore, Kubin and Petraglia 2008, 2009) in a Footloose Capital model (Martin and Rogers 1995) with publicly financed R&D activities. Results are obtained under alternative assumptions on the intensity of knowledge spillovers (KS). New ideas generated in the R&D sector are alternatively assumed to be beneficial to all firms regardless of their location (per-fectly global KS), to local firms only (perfectly local KS) or to local firms to a higher extent than to foreign ones (partially local KS). Re-sults on both local dynamics around the interior and boundary fixed points and their global stability properties are obtained.
