摘要

With exogenous R&D investments, the absorptive capacity effect (when small R&D investments provide large spillovers) contributes to increase the gains from going multinational when the firm is R&D-intensive.

If R&D investments are endogenous, only medium-sized absorptive capacity effects will result in firms going multinational.

Higher spillover rates do not necessarily drive down R&D and profits for the multinational firm.
