Technological diffusion and managing the associated economic transitions in Ireland

Haruki Seitani and Ben Westmore ()

No 1610, OECD Economics Department Working Papers from OECD Publishing

Adoption of new technologies by businesses has been high relative to many other OECD economies, but it has been uneven across industries and the impact on productivity growth in most firms has been modest so far.
