Plant-level Determinants of Total Factor Productivity in Great Britain, 1997-2006

Richard Harris () and John Moffat

SERC Discussion Papers from Centre for Economic Performance, LSE

Abstract: This paper examines the determinants of total factor productivity (TFP) using a GB plant-level dataset. Using a systems-GMM approach, it considers the role of the following four plant characteristics: internal and external knowledge; foreign ownership, multi-plant economies of scale and competition; and spatial spillovers and 'place' effects. The sample is disaggregated into manufacturing and services and by technology to show any differences across sectors.

Keywords: productivity; plant level TFP; spatial ‘place’ effects; foreign-owned plants (search for similar items in EconPapers)
