  1. 1. Spillovers from public intangibles C. Corrado, (The Conference Board), New York J. Haskel, (Imperial College Business School, CEPR and IZA), London C. Jona-Lasinio, (LUISS Lab and ISTAT), Rome OECD Blue Skies Conference, September 2016. All papers referred to at www.spintan.net www.spintan.net has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No. 612774 Corrado, Haskel, Jona-Lasinio SPINTAN 1 / 12
  2. 2. Background and non-technical summary • The public sector is a major investor in many tangible asset (computers, machines, roads etc.) and intangible assets (e.g. education, training and R&D) • Major policy question: are there spillovers from public intangibles to the private sector? • Evidence for spillovers from public R&D to the market sector growth exists e.g. Guellec and van Pottelsberghe (2002, and 2004), Salter and Martin (2002) and Park (1995). • Evidence for spillovers from general education to growth harder to detect (Krueger and Lindahl, 2001) i.e. most benets go to workers • This paper uses new data to look for eects of public sector RD on private sector productivity ( spillovers), and estimates the public RD rate of return. This is hard because: • Eects are hard to detect since public sector RD often is free, so no observable market transaction to proxy rate of return (e.g. a licence payment) • The private sector also invests in tangible and intangibles, so this has to be controlled for. • We can summarise our ndings in one picture...

  3. 3. TFP growth and Non-market RD • Roughly, countries with high (lagged) non-market RD have higher market-sector (total factor) productivity growth • This is conrmed in statistical analysis with more controls etc. ATDE ES FI FR IT NL SE UK US AT DE ES FI FR IT NL SE UK US AT DE ES FI FR IT NL SE UK US -.010.01.02.03 -.06-.04-.020 -.0050.005.01.015 0 .005 .01 .015 0 .005 .01 .015 2004-07 2008-09 2010-13 DlnTFP,marketsector (Non-market RD/PqQ) in previous period Graphs by period Market sector TFP growth and non-market RD Corrado, Haskel, Jona-Lasinio SPINTAN 3 / 12
  4. 4. Exploring spillovers, some details • We wish to study ∆lnTFP in the market sector and RD and intangibles in the market and non-market sector • Thus we need to build a data set with ∆lnTFP in the market sector and intangibles in the non-market sector • We need to do this consistently since • National Accounts now capitalises RD so the interpretation of rates of return has changed • If we are to study spillovers from intangibles, we need to build in intangibles, which means adjusting outputs, inputs and all rates of return • Public RD spend does not vary much within countries over time, much more across countries and hence we wish to look across countries • Thus we construct a consisent database with outputs and inputs with the following dimensions • Country (12 countries, US, Northern Europe: DE, FR, UK; Scandinavian: DK FI, SE; Small Europe: AT, CZ, NL; Mediterranean: ES, IT) • Industry: 20 industries (A-U Nace Rev 2) • Institutional sector: Market and non-market within each of the 20 industries • Asset: Tangible and intangible assets (NA, INTAN Invest and SPINTAN) • Methodology is discussed in Corrado, Haskel, Jona-Lasinio (2014), SPINTAN Working Paper N.1 Corrado, Haskel, Jona-Lasinio SPINTAN 4 / 12
  5. 5. Exploring spillovers, some details, contd • To do this we • Collect output and investment data by year-country-industry-institutional sector-asset from national accounts (for output and tangibles) and own-calculations (for non-national accounts intangibles plus splits by sector) • Build capital stocks and consistent capital rental prices • Link with EU-KLEMS labour composition data • Calculate growth accounts • Look at ∆lnTFP in the market sector and RD and intangibles in the market and non-market sector Corrado, Haskel, Jona-Lasinio SPINTAN 5 / 12

  8. 8. Theory and model Consider a production possibility frontier for country c, industry i, time t relating value added Q to services of: labour, L, tangible capital K and intangible captial R: Qc,i,t = Ac,i,tFc,i (Lc,i,t, Kc,i,t, Rc,i,t) (1) Log dierentiating equation gives: ∆lnQc,i,t = L c,i,t∆lnLc,i,t + K c,i,t∆lnKc,i,t + R c,i,t∆lnRc,i,t + ∆lnAc,i,t (2) where X denotes the output elasticity of an input X. Optimisation implies: X c,i,t = sX c,i,t + dX c,i,t, X = L, K, R (3) i.e. output elasticities deviate from factor shares by d, where d is due to e.g., spillovers. Thus to examine spillovers regress ∆lnTFPQ c,i,t = dL c,i,t∆lnLc,i,t + dK c,i,t∆lnKc,i,t + dR c,i,t∆lnRc,i,t + ∆lnAc,i,t (4) where ∆lnTFPQ c,i,t is calculated as ∆lnTFPQ c,i,t = ∆lnQc,i,t − sL c,i,t∆lnLc,i,t − sK c,i,t∆lnKc,i,t − sR c,i,t∆lnRc,i,t (5) Corrado, Haskel, Jona-Lasinio SPINTAN 8 / 12

  12. 12. Conclusion • New dataset to look at spillovers from all public intangibles to private sector • This paper looks for spillovers from public RD using cross-country data, pooled over 4 year time periods • Spillovers from market intangibles to market productivity, in line with other results • Spillovers from non-market RD to market productivity, rates of return are very high! • Spillovers take time • Broad thrust of work backed up by time series work • Further work will make data available and look for more eects and rates of return Corrado, Haskel, Jona-Lasinio SPINTAN 12 / 12
