Abstract

One of the most efficient methods to raise competitiveness in an economy for stable and continuous economic growth comes from research and development (R&D) activities. This paper investigates the contribution effect of R&D stock for economic growth using the R&D based Cobb-Douglas production function during the years 1976- 2009. In addition to the past literatures, this paper estimates the contribution of two sourced R&D stocks for economic growth. Based on the empirical results, the traditional production factors — labor and capital — contribute about 65% to economic growth. Also, the contribution ratio of overall R&D stock to economic growth is about 35%. In detail, public and private R&D stocks account for economic growth of about 16% and 19%, respectively.
