Title

Application of ICT: Ascertaining knowledge flows through labor mobility in the ICT sector of Pakistan

Abstract/Description

This paper attempts to fill the gap in literature on channels of spillovers with a particular focus to the ICT sector and developing countries. With the help of a custom-made survey we have constructed variables which help to identify and measure the most prominent channels of spillovers suggested in literature. Our results corroborate labor mobility as one of the most important channel for inter-firm knowledge flows.
