|Title:||Subsidies in an R&D growth model with elastic labor||Authors:||Zeng, J.
|Issue Date:||2007||Citation:||Zeng, J., Zhang, J. (2007). Subsidies in an R&D growth model with elastic labor. Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control 31 (3) : 861-886.

Unlike existing studies with lump-sum taxes and fixed labor, we assume distortionary taxes and elastic labor, finding some new insights. First, subsidizing R&D investment is more effective than subsidizing final output or subsidizing the purchase of intermediate goods in terms of promoting growth. Second, in terms of raising welfare, the R&D subsidy may also be more effective than the other subsidies and all of them are dominated by their mix, but none can achieve the social optimum.©2006 Elsevier B.V.
