Picking up speed: Does ultrafast broadband increase firm productivity?

UFB alone    is not the path to success.    Organise, you must.    We estimate whether there are productivity gains from ultrafast broadband (UFB) adoption and whether any gains are higher when firms undertake...

Climate Change, Innovation and Technology Policy

There is a strong foundation in theoretical and empirical research in economics for the proposition that efficient climate policy must include both carbon-price policy and technology policy. Even the most modest projections of Greenhouse Gan...

Diffusion of Green Technology: A Survey

This paper surveys the existing literature on diffusion of environmentally beneficial technology.
Overall, it confirms many of the lessons of the larger literature on technology diffusion:
diffusion often appears slow when viewed from the outside;
the flow of...

Diffusion of Environmentally Beneficial Technology

Environmental challenges cannot be addressed at achievable cost without new technology (broadly defined). 

The Adoption of Environmentally Friendly Technologies in Agriculture

This research note considers the decision faced by farmers who have the option of adopting a new, environmentally friendly production technology. It discusses why the rate of adoption is likely to deviate from the rate...

Measuring Science, Technology, and Innovation: A Review

An “indicator” is a set of facts or observations that tells us something meaningful about the underlying phenomenon of interest, in this case science, technology and innovation (henceforth STI). In order to evaluate whether a particular set...

Is Fibre Good for Us?

Fast internet access is widely considered to be a factor in enhancing productivity. As faster broadband technologies become available, calls are made to upgrade existing telecommunications networks so that local firms and households won't be...

Policy-Induced Technology Adoption: Evidence from the U.S. Lead Phasedown

Theory suggests that economic instruments, such as pollution taxes or tradable permits, can provide more efficient technology adoption incentives than conventional regulatory standards. We explore this issue for an important industry undergoing dramatic decreases in...
