The authors develop a methodology for evaluating types of innovations, their time paths, and how these factors affect the empirical results obtained from models measuring the economic impacts of government R & D. Based on this investigation, they argue that apparent contradictions found in the empirical results probably have little, if anything, to do with the effectiveness of government R & D but rather are most likely a consequence of the type and nature of the innovations analyzed.
