Research and Development Satellite Account. In an upcoming issue of the SURVEY, BEA will present a research and development satellite account. This account, which will supplement the existing system of national economic accounts, will treat expenditures on research and development as fixed investment, and the resulting capital stocks will be consistent with BEA’s estimates of tangible wealth.
