Review of Political Economy, 2020, vol. 32, issue 2, 283-296

Abstract: Recent contributions have mentioned the possibility of a declining trend in capacity utilization in the US since the 1970s. However, no consensus has emerged on the empirical evidence. The aim of this paper is to identify if such a declining trend in capacity utilization exists in the US economy: New empirical evidence is shown confirming that this is the case, at least since 1989.
