Philip Marey and LEX BORGHANS, Wage elasticities of the supply of R&D workers in the Netherlands

ROA, Maastricht University, P.O. Box 616, 6200 MD Maastricht, The Netherlands E-mail: l.borghans@roa.unimaas.nl

Endogenous growth theory shows the crucial importance of R&D for economic growth. However, the effectiveness of R&D policies is limited by the low wage elasticities of the supply of R&D workers. Estimating these elasticities for the Netherlands is hampered by the lack of appropriate micro-data. The empirical literature suggests that estimating wage elasticities from macro-data may be impossible. However, we show that the identification problem can be solved by performing the instrumental variables approach in a cointegration framework. We apply this estimation approach to macro-data from the R&D Survey of Statistics Netherlands. The wage elasticity of the supply of R&D workers in the Netherlands is 0.96 in the short run and 1.20 in the long run. When R&D expenditure is increased, the demand side of the labour market for R&D workers compensates for the short-run inflexibility of the supply side by strong wage increases in the short run and weaker responses in the long run. As a result, a 1.0% increase in real R&D spending will lead to a 0.5% increase in the employment of R&D workers, both in the short run and in the long run.

Theme: Labour Supply
Keywords: Wage Elasticities, R&D, Cointegration
