|Abstract:||We investigate the existence of local (within-country) and global (between-country) knowledge spillovers within a single analytical framework. Our study is based on a detailed database of domestically owned and foreign-affiliated manufacturing plants located in Ireland. The results of our econometric analysis show that domestically owned plants benefit from the research and development (R&D) activities of other domestically owned plants, as well as from R&D activities conducted in the country of origin of foreign-owned plants through their presence in Ireland. A fundamental difference between such locally generated and locally transmitted global spillovers appears to be that the latter are much less constrained by distance decay effects.|
