Imperfect spillovers of secondary development can make the development of new technologies unattractive until research ceases in the long run. Changes in the relative supply of primary factors act as a stimulus for research as new technologies are better suited for the new environment. A simulation using changes of crude oil prices in the US shows the quantitative significance of the model's implications. The model is able to explain long waves of economic development where growth cycles are triggered by changes in the relative factor supply. It also provides a new rationale for governmental regulations such as Pigouvian taxes and pollution permits as they can stimulate innovation and provide the base for the development of "green" technologies.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2016-01-28T13:53:03Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
