Productivity Growth in Industrialized Countries

Leopold Simar () and Paul Wilson ()

Working Papers from Catholique de Louvain - Institut de statistique

Abstract: Several recent papers in the American Economic Review examined important questions regarding productivity growth and its sources in industrialized countries. We examine two sets of issues raised by these papers, and reassess what can be learned about productivity, efficiency, and technology from the data used by both papers. The first set of issues are primarily economic in nature.
