Abstract

R and D activities of emerging countries (EMEs) have increased considerably. We scrutinize inventions, spillovers and the “scale effects” in a large panel of EMEs.

Spillover pools originating from

  1. industrialized world,
  2. emerging world,
  3. country and regional groups, and
  4. individual trading partner, via multiple conduits of spillovers, are examined.

The breadth and depth of spillovers appear exceptionally moderate across EMEs. Evidence are not supportive of social dimensions in knowledge diffusions across EMEs. Evidence supports scale effects in EMEs but not in industrialized countries. This study complements the micro literature, furthers the macro literature and provides some new policy insights.
