Our recent work examines the links among innovation, technology, trade, and growth. One strand focuses on research activity, technology diffusion, and growth. The other examines technology and trade. In this paper we exploit the common treatment of technology in these two strands to provide a parsimonious model of innovation, growth, and trade. We examine the effect of lower geographic barriers to trade on research and the effects of scale and research productivity on relative incomes.
