TFP and Intelligence: a cross-national empirical evidence

Evgeniya Gorlova

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: We investigate the effect of intelligence on total factor productivity (TFP) using cross section data for 108 countries over the period 2000-2011. We find that intelligence, measured by national IQ scores, increases average level of each country’s TFP value relative to U.S.
