In a recent paper (Moretti et al., ) we study the effect of government-funded R&D on private R&D—namely, R&D conducted and financed by private businesses. We use a unique dataset on government-funded and private R&D in multiple industries in every OECD country over 23 years.

government subsidies to private military R&D: The Defense Department's independent R&D. Defence R&D is a major component of government-sponsored R&D in many developed economies, and the effect of defence R&D expenditures on private sector innovation and economic growth has been a hotly debated topic for many years.

This column presents a systematic analysis across all OECD countries which suggests that a 10% increase in defence R&D results in a 4%. As tech innovates, the federal government is trying to as well. Inthe U.S. government funded less than half of all basic research in the country for the first time since World War II.

The intellectual spoils of war: How government spending on defence research benefits the private sector Government funding for innovation related to military uses represents a key channel through which governments all over the world shape innovation.

In the US, for example, annual government defence-related research and development (R&D) expenditures were $78 billion inaccounting. find evidence of international spillovers, as increases in government-funded R&D in a particular industry and country raise private R&D in the same industry in other countries.

We consider a monop-olistic competitive market with free entry in which firms can invest in cost-cutting R&D by paying a fixed cost first.The effect of government subsidies on private R&D: evidence from geographic variation in support program funding* Abstract Despite the prevalence of government research and development (R&D) support programs, evaluation studies based on explicit differences in support allocation are rare.
