The potency of patent legislation is tested in a latest version of monetary progress. those contributions are complemented through analyses of methodological difficulties enthusiastic about the size, estimation and aggregation of potency indices.

Condition 3 equates th e marginal benefit of effort with its marginal cost. We note th at marginal cost is great er than unity, and th e first best marginal cost is equal to unity. Using th e results of Lemma 1, we can rewrite th e principal 's problem as Ma x rH + pM {e} + (1 - r - p)L - pip'. (4) Problem 4 has a first order condition identical to 3. Let 1l'( e) == r H + pM + (1 - r - p)L - pip' . The equilibrium is illustrated in Figure 1, where we also illustrat e the first best effort as ef defined by p' (ef ) (M - L) = 1.
