Example text

In the models described above, increased adoption results in ‘negative externalities’ on existing non-adopters since the later they join the adopters group, the less profits they have from adoption. But there might be positive externalities from increased adoption in terms of (i) an informational externality in the adoption process, (ii) cost reductions due to mass production/standardisation of the technology and/or, (iii) from benefits arising from a growing network of complementary products and services accompanying the original technology.

Geography was introduced into the model later by a group of urban economists, and the theory, came with a greater emphasis on geography, lending a new perspective to agglomeration and spill-over research. Notably, Lucas (1988) showed positive externalities of human capital accumulation arguing that new skills acquired by each worker can be shared or spill over to others in the same location, eventually making the entire labor pool more productive. Later, Black and Henderson (1999) related knowledge spillovers from human capital to spatial agglomeration by combining models several models (Koo 2005).

1990) for a description of the different functional forms used in empirical diffusion models. 3 Modelling Technology Diffusion: Perspectives from Mainstream Economics. . 25 regard to the expected profitability of adoption, again studies highlight two opposing types of effects of on the rate of diffusion: reduction in expected profitability due to uncertainty (due to rapid introduction of incremental innovation) which might slow the diffusion process, and increased profitability resulting from early adoption (due to its effects on preemption and market share) which might foster diffusion.
