Patents and Innovation Economics

Excellent Article by Adam Mossoff: Do IP Rights Promote Economic growth

Intellectual property and economic prosperity: Friends or foes?, in TechPolicyDaily.com.  The article reviews a report by the Mercatus Center, a free-market think tank that is highly critical of IP.  Here is one of my favorite quotes from the article:

“It is bewildering, for example, to find a libertarian think tank arguing that government projects are superior to private property rights as a means of directing resources to innovative activities.”

 

What is amazing is that the evidence between inventions, economic growth, and property rights for inventions is overwhelming.  Those countries with the strongest patent systems are leaders in creating new technologies and the leaders in disseminating new technologies.
