The report is one of a series of eight volumes prepared for the Experimental Technology Incentives Program, National Bureau of Standards. The first seven volumes are case studies of the microeconomic impacts of subsidy programs in the following industries or segments of an industry: local service air transport, maritime transport, nuclear power, mass transit, health facilities, technical publishing, and municipal wastewater treatment facilities. Emphasis is placed on the impact of subsidies on technological change. The eighth volume provides a summary and analysis of the impact of the subsidies in the seven industries, and gives conclusions with respect to the differential effects of subsidy programs with different structures and methods of administration. It also provides operational guidelines for managers respecting the implementation and evaluation of subsidy programs when capital formation and technological change are either explicit objectives or important results of the programs.
