Advanced Public Procurement as Industrial Policy: The by Gunnar Eliasson

By Gunnar Eliasson

The fundamental subject of this e-book is to enquire the macroeconomic importance of the "cloud" of technological spillovers that surrounds complex business construction: In what methods do technological concepts unfold and give a contribution to fiscal development? What regulations will be constructed to maximise the industrial capability of suggestions? those topics are really well timed within the context of worldwide fiscal situation, government-sponsored stimulus applications, and the continued evolution from manufacturing-based to knowledge-based economies. To discover those matters intensive, Gunnar Eliasson specializes in an in depth case research of the advance of Saab’s army airplane, the JAS 39 Gripen system—a venture that includes complicated technological ideas, a posh community of providers, public-private region collaboration, and either army and advertisement functions. The adventure within the airplane is additionally in comparison with spillover results in telephony, pcs, and clinical applied sciences. The research emphasizes the function of shopper competence in elevating the standard of innovation provide, and of entrepreneurship and industrially useful enterprise capital for commercializing spillovers. Eliasson integrates micro-econometrics and case examine research with macroeconomics, innovation examine equipment, and enterprise management concept to degree the results of know-how spillovers and generate an excellent empirical origin for coverage research. particularly, he considers:

  • the function of efficient public (government) procurement as a brand new call for coverage to aid innovation supply
  • the emergence of the complicated agencies as "technical university," the place continuous studying occurs and entrepreneurship between shoppers and different stakeholders is encouraged
  • issues of highbrow estate rights and the social price of technological innovations
  • the implications for strategic company perform and public policy

The result's a publication that may entice a extensive spectrum of teachers, leaders, and policymakers drawn to the dynamics of innovation provide, commercialization of applied sciences and monetary growth.

In that capacity, the aircraft industry is more critical as a source of industrial knowledge than existing technical universities in Sweden. The existence and industrial vitality of the Swedish aircraft industry may therefore be what is needed to keep the Swedish engineering industry alive and competitive over the foreseeable future as the industrial back bone of economic welfare creation. For the time being, at least, I can see no other industrial candidates on the horizon capable to fill in if the Swedish engineering industry engine begins to sputter.

7. Also see Alic et al. (1992), Gansler (1989), and Markusen and Yudken (1992). It should be noted again here, and for the policy discussion to follow in Chap. 9 that spillovers are not subsidies. I am currently involved in a complementary study on spillovers from weapons development by Saab Bofors Dynamics for the Gripen aircraft. 10. For an explanation and qualification of that statement see Technical Supplement S2. 11. See Table 2B in Technical Supplement S2. The exact calculation method is described in Chap.

4 The Questions Raised This introductory presentation, therefore, addresses five questions: 1. Why are spillovers interesting? Do they exist? How large are they? 2. How are spillovers created? The critical role of the advanced customer. 3. What do spillovers look like? The case presentations. 4. How are economically valuable spillovers identified, captured, and commercialized (Competence bloc theory). 5. What are the implications for business practice and policy and for government policy of public procurement?
