dc.description.abstractThe economics literature clearly shows that the transmission of knowledge diminisheswith physical distance, a factor contributing to industrial clustering. This paperinvestigates how those distances have stretched over time. We measure the physicaldistance between collaborating inventors, as well as distances between inventors and thetechnology cited in their patents. There is an obvious change over time while controllingfor other factors, and we present interesting implications about the distance-dissolvingeffects of the communication revolution: firms and independent inventors benefit indistinctly different ways, while some states and technology classes are obvious winnersover their peers.en_US
