37 A Satellite Account for Research and Development (PDF)

BEA has prepared a satellite account that is designed to facilitate analysis of the role of research and development (R&D) in the U.S. economy. In the R&D satellite account, R&D expenditures are treated as a form of investment, and the resulting investment flows are used to estimate stocks of R&D fixed intangible capital. The stock of R&D capital grew rapidly during 195370, slowed sharply during 197081, and then grew somewhat more rapidly. Adding the constant-cost net stock of R&D fixed capital to the NIPA constant cost net stock of fixed reproducible tangible capital would have raised the net wealth of government and business by nearly 9 percent in 1992.
