Staff Working Paper/Document de travail du personnel 2019-2. The Productivity Slowdown in Canada: An ICT Phenomenon? by Jeff Mollins and Pierre St-Amant. Specifically, Oulton argues that the relative growth of ICT prices embodies the difference between total factor productivity (TFP) growth rates in the ICT and non-ICT sectors. Although Oulton does not compare periods, he finds that ICT’s contribution to productivity has been strong in the 2000s in a group of OECD countries including Canada.

manufacturing industry over the period 1949-83 is due to the embodiment effect.

First, the productivity growth slowdown is examined at various levels of industry .

First, the productivity growth slowdown is examined at various levels of industry disaggregation. It is apparent from this analysis that the slowdown varied widely across industries, with resource-based and energy-related industries generally experiencing the largest declines. Econometrically, nearly half of the slowdown in labour productivity growth in the non-energy commercial sector can be explained by the energy price shock.

Productivity growth in crops has largely been the result of technical .

This paper measures and assesses the variation in total factor productivity (TFP) growth among Canadian provinces in crops and livestock production over the period 1940–2009. It also determines if agricultural productivity growth in Canada has recently slowed down as indicated by earlier studies.

NBER Working Paper No. w3971. 38 Pages Posted: 15 Jan 2007. This paper attempts to fill this gap by merging the estimates of quality change obtained from the price literature on quality change with a version of the conventional sources of growth model which allows for both embodied and disembodied technical change. manufacturing industry over the period 1949-83 is due to the embodiment effect.

The question of technical change and productivity growth is one of the fundamental empirical issues of our time

The question of technical change and productivity growth is one of the fundamental empirical issues of our time  . This paper seeks to bridge the early work of Solow and others on the extent of embodiment of technical change with the more modern approach to estimating the structure of production and technical change using multifactor cost functions. We also attempted to identify the source and structural nature of embodied technical change by decomposing it. Our theoretical model is applied to a pooled cross-section of six OECD countries for the 1965–1989 period.

Also, the slowdown of output growth is related to the slowdown of labor .

Also, the slowdown of output growth is related to the slowdown of labor productivity growth.

This paper deals with the issue of the weak growth in Italian labor .

This paper deals with the issue of the weak growth in Italian labor productivity with particular reference to the period between 2000 and 2016. The analysis shows how the weak growth in labor productivity is due to some peculiar structural aspects of the Italian production system. The slowdown in productivity seemed to be much more marked in Italy after 1993 than in other countries . As Paul Krugman said , Productivity isn’t everything but, in the long run, it is almost everything.
