R&D and Productivity Growth

Dominique Guellec, Bruno van Pottelsberghe de la Potterie
2002 OECD Economic Studies  
Economic theory (Solow, 1957; Romer, 1990) points to technical change as the major source of productivity growth in the long run.  ...  In most countries the growth of business R&D has been higher in the 1980s than in the 1990s (see Guellec and Ioannidis, 1999 , for an analysis of the "levelling off" of R&D).  ...  This non-significant estimated parameter may reflect the fact that public research has essentially a long-term impact on MFP growth.  ...

Health, labour productivity and growth [chapter]

Thomas Ziesemer, Joan Muysken, I Hakan Yetkiner
2003 Routledge Studies in International Business and the World Economy  
Nevertheless the growth implications of health, another component of human capital, compared to education, have not been investigated thoroughly within the optimum growth framework yet.  ...  This positive relationship between health and per capita output is first shown in the standard neo-classical growth framework where the health status is exogenously given.  ...  The theoretical part of their study takes the positive relation between output and health as given -as we do below. The authors then estimate this relation in a Solovian growth framework.  ...

Canadian Productivity Growth, Secular Stagnation, and Technological Change

Canadian Productivity Growth, Secular Stagnation, and Technological Change, Jon Cohen
2018 International Productivity Monitor  
In this article, we show first that the recent slowdown in productivity growth in Canada, similar to that in the United States, can be attributed at least in part to the fall-off in the commercialization  ...  Second, our latest results suggest that, contrary to the concerns of some that we are entering a new period of secular stagnation characterized by low productivity and economic growth, we are actually  ...  From this point of view, then, lackluster technical change has been a major contributor to the recent fall-off in productivity growth and there is little reason to believe that a turnaround is imminent  ...

Secondary products and the measurement of productivity growth

Thijs ten Raa, Edward N Wolff

productivity growth.  ...  The paper considers alternative treatments of secondary products in input-output systems and analyzes their implications for the measurement of productivity growth at both the sectoral and overall level  ...  To do this, let matrix P be the diagonal of matrix V (primary products) and matrix S be the off-diagonal elements (secondary products). Then, v=p+s.  ...

We also present evidence that countries systematically shift resources towards manufacturing industries with rapid productivity growth, and towards sectors with low productivity growth, consistent with  ...  In an economy with many industries that experience different rates of productivity growth, these "stages of diversification" may obtain if initial conditions are skewed away from the industries that dominate  ...  Note that in the calibrated model of Ilyina and Samaniego (2012) productivity growth in poor countries is relatively fast and convergence does take place: it is in a relative sense that catchup is slower  ...

Environmental policies and productivity growth

Tomasz Kozluk, Vera Zipperer
2015 OECD Journal Economic Studies  
This paper reviews the empirical evidence on the link between environmental policy stringency and productivity growth, and the various channels through which such effects can take place.  ...  The traditional approach sees environmental policies as a burden on economic activity, at least in the short to medium term, as they raise costs without increasing output and restrict the set of production  ...  Fairly static or one-off policy changes are likely to permanently affect productivity levels, but only temporarily affect productivity growth rates.  ...
