    Stimulating Economic Growth through Knowledge-Based Investment

    Recent studies have shown that knowledge-based capital (KBC) is an important source of economic growth in many of the world’s advanced economies (much more so than R&D alone) and is positively correlated with real GDP per capita in a cross-section of these economies. This literature is still in its infancy and there is, as yet, no systematic discussion of KBC policy. This working paper makes an attempt to fill this gap.

    High-growth firms, i.e. enterprises that grow rapidly over a short period of time, have drawn the attention of policy makers because of the large number of jobs they create.
