Misallocation and productivity

Diego Restuccia () and Richard Rogerson ()

Review of Economic Dynamics, 2013, vol. 16, issue 1, 1-10

Abstract: A large portion of differences in output per capita across countries is explained by differences in total factor productivity (TFP). In this article, we summarize a recent literature — and the articles in this special issue on misallocation and productivity — that focus on the reallocation of factors across heterogenous production units as an important source of measured TFP differences across countries.
