    • FUNDACION RAMON ARECES The new agenda for innovation studies Madrid, March 2014. Jorge Katz FEN, University of Chile
    • A brief visit to received theory. The theory of Economic Growth exhibits two quite different research agendas that do not speak to each other. The first one, the neoclassical equilibrium growth agenda, was started by R.Solow in the 1950’s and further developed by R.Barro and Salas I Martin, P.Aghion and many others. The second one, based on Schumpeter and evolutionary economics, has been developed by R.Nelson, G.Dosi, C.Freeman and others. Large conceptual differences prevail mong them concerning what economic growth is all about. The first agenda comes from Newtonian physics, the second one from Darwinian ´natural selection´. Both have little to say when looking at natural resource based growth, a central topic in Latin America today. Environmental sustainability and social inclusiveness demand a conceptual framework and public policies which both agendas have not so far illuminated.
    • MAJOR TOPICS IN WHICH, FROM A LATIN AMERICAN PERSPECTIVE, REVEIVED THEORY HAS NOT SO FAR ADEQUATELY EXPLORED. 1. Impact of macro management upon the structure and growth of the economy. -Mundell-Fleming (coming from Hicksian IS/LM) describes an equilibrium aggregate in which the structure of the economy is absent. It is the conceptual basis of inflation targeting policy regimes in most of LA. When sectors are at different distance of the technological frontier it is not much of a help to discuss the economics of ´catch up´. -Dutch disease and recent ´commoditization´ of the LA production structure. 2. Impact of natural resource based growth upon environmental sustainability -Tragedy of the commons and institutions in CPRs. -Impact upon lost of biodiversity, desertification, climate change and else. -KIBS and high tech activities in the value chain of natural resource based industries. 3. Expansion of the natural resource based exploitation frontier and lack of public goods. 4. The price of environmental services and Ricardian rents. 5. Social exclusion and democratic governance. -The emergence of a new middle class, demanding education nd health services, energy and transport facilities, residencial housing and else. The 1/3 – 2/3 societies and democratic governance.
    • From Hicksian IS-LM to Mundell-Fleming (Short term equilibrium in a closed/open macro model). 1.IS-LM describes the equilibrium relation between i (the interest rate) and Q (output) in a closed economy, with rational agents, no market failures, no uncertainty and no institutions (besides the market itself). 2. Mundell-Fleming expands the above into an open economy model and explores short term equilibrium between the nominal exchange rate and output. MF assumes free capital mobility and shows that the authority can not maintain a fixed exchange rate and an autonomous monetary policy. This is called the ‘impossible trinity’. Floating the exchange rate in equilibrium the local i has to converge to the international interest rate. 3.Following MF most countries in LA opted for an ‘inflation targeting’ macro policy regime, floating the exchange rate, allowing for free capital mobility and using the interest rate to regulate aggregate demand. 4.This isn’t easy when the external cycle affects the interest rate and induces short term capital movements. These movements appreciate (depreciate) the local currency, affecting competitiveness, the structure of GDP, the local relative price of tradable and non tradable sectors and the rate of inflation.
    • Hicksian IS-LM to Mundell-Fleming (2) • In the logic of MF an increase in monetary supply shifts LM downwards, reducing local i vis vis the international I rate; this induces local capital to move out, the exchange rate depreciates and domestic goods become cheaper abroad. This expands exports. The expansion of Xs moves the IS curve outwards and i falls until it reaches the external interest rate. A similar analysis can be done if we consider a change in public expenditure (which moves the IS curve), a change in wages, in the external interest rate, and else. • Why does this discussion matter to us? It does because the evidence says that changes in RER - undervaluation (overvaluation) - induce changes in the growth rate. (Rodrick,2008). Inflation targeting is used as a short term policy regime, but it affects rate and structure of GDP (R.Frenkel) What is the alternative?. Consider the case of a fixed exchange rate policy. (Argentina after the 2002 devaluation). SCRER alone is not enough a. The lesson seems to be : A SCRER is a necessary but not sufficient condition. A mix of monetary, exchange rate and fiscal policies is needed, but also sector specific industrial policies in the way Korea orTaiwan used in the 80´s. (Amdem). So much for the macro. How about structure? b. MF does not consider the structural heterogeneity of the economy . If we bring it in, jointly with a pro-growth macro policy regime we need sector/region –specific policy interventions.

    • A view as from evolutionary economics. • Rutinas • Incertidumbre • Racionalidad limitada • Aspectos tácitos del conocimiento • Irreversibilidad del cambio técnico y path dependency • Herencia schumpeteriana de la creacion destructiva. Very little of this analytical framework has been so far used in the exploration of natural resource based industries. The dialogue between economics and the ecology is still in its infancy and both a theoretical framework and adequate policy instruments are lacking to deal with market failure in relation to sustainability and inclusiveness. A ne set of supporting institutions is still demanding to be developed.
    • TOPICS FOR A FUTURE RESEARCH AGENDA ON NATURAL RESOURCE BASED GROWTH • The firm in natural resource processing industries. Subcontracting minin, aquaculture, agriculture. • Sectoral institutions. Royalties and cannons on the use of environmental services. • Public sector regulatory institutions Interdependencias entre lo macro, lo micro y la estructura. • The expansion of the natiural resource exploitation frontier and public goods. • The role of Corporate social responsibility in the expansion of the frontier. • External demand, prices and resource overexploitation. Optimal ‘loading capacity’ and the need for location-specific R&D. • KIBs in the production chain and domestic capabilities. Local Universities.
