“Structural transformation and the rise of information technology” by Gallipoli and Makridis provides compelling evidence on the effects of increasingly productive IT-intensive occupations on within-sector productivity growth. I discuss their results and link them to patterns of aggregate productivity growth. While there are limits to aggregate conclusions from within-sector patterns, their findings provide rich empirical restrictions on equilibrium models of structural transformation.
