This paper provides empirical evidence on the relationship between market competitive pressure and firms’ innovation using panel data of Spanish manufacturing firms for the period 1990-2006.
Using firm-level data on Spanish manufacturing firms we estimate a model of the firm’s optimal R&D decisions (whether to perform R&D and how much to invest).
We examine the incentives of access-regulated firms to invest in infrastructure facilities they must share with competitors.
We study the relationship between competition and price discrimination through an empirical examination of hourly price schedules in the parking garage industry.
