TFP and Intelligence: a cross-national empirical evidence
MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
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.
