It is shown that, as the number of firms increases, firms tend to allocate higher budgets for development, relative to basic research. This is in contrast to the results found in Aghion and Howitt (Aghion, P., Howitt, P. 1996. Research and development in the growth process. Jounal of Economic Growth 1, 49-73.).
