  1. I just scanned your RKE article and will read it again when I have more time. I wish that I had your imagination and work ethic! Although only a lowly civil servant in Regina, Saskatchewan; I would like to do more research on the macroeconomics of R&D. I will write more later about this.

    1. I did a paper on that topic while at Arizona State. The upshot was a 5:1 return on the money’s invested in research. That may still stand up if my observations of my employer (Intel) can be generalized to other industries.

  2. Nice teaching documents! I’m a UMASS phd from long ago always looking for ways to provide clear and concise pieces of the puzzle. I enjoyed your recent article that was circulated in evonomics too! All the best,
