Private and Social Spillover Benefits from Advanced Procurement: Defining and Estimating the Spillover Multiplier

  • Gunnar Eliasson
Part of the Economics of Science, Technology and Innovation book series (ESTI, volume 34)


The economic analysis of the macroeconomic effects of spillovers around advanced firms is partly a matter of the free technology supply that they represent (addressed in the previous chapters) and partly (and not to be forgotten) the problem of capturing (commercializing) the technologies spilled. The latter capture problem is addressed in this and the following chapter as is the measurement of the spillover multiplier, first introduced in Sect. 1.1.
