See Cohen and Levin (1989) for a survey of empirical studies of the determinants of innovation. Much of this work suggests that the role of firm size and market structure in affecting innovation is fairly modest, and is probably dominated by the effects of variations in "technological opportunities". For a survey of work on spillovers, see Geroski (1992). For ajustification ofthe market share/concentration interaction variable, see Kwoka and Ravenscraft (1986), Machin and Van Reenan (1992), and others; Geroski and Jacquemin (1988), and Mueller (1986 and 1990) make the case for allowing for dynamics explicitly in a model like (1).

That is, thte profitability of innovating firms is less persistent over time (all else constant) than that of non-innovators, although variations in innovators profits are not noticeably less predictable than those of non-innovators. Since most of the innovations in the SPRU data come from engineering or chemicals firms, it is unlikely that the (relative) cyclical insensitivity of innovating firms which we have observed arises because innovators are in cyclically less turbulent markets than non-innovators.
