摘要

In a North-South trade model, we analysis the effects of northern technology export control on northern innovation, profits and welfare. We also investigate the optimal technology export control policy of the northern government. It is assumed that the northern firm can engage in R&D and transfer its technology to a firm in the southern country. We show that technology export control policy can stimulate (stifle) the northern firm’s R&D investment if its R&D efficiency is high (low). The optimal regulation policy on technology export for the northern government is no regulation if the R&D efficiency of the northern firm is low. Nevertheless, implementing technology export control is the optimal policy if the R&D efficiency of the northern firm is high. This result is interesting and has never been documented in trade literature. It also provides important policy implication for the northern countries regulating technology export.
