What drives productivity growth?

Economists have long debated the best way to explain the sources of productivity growth. Neoclassical theory and "new growth" theory both regard investment?broadly defined to include purchases of tangible assets, human capital expenditures, and research and development efforts?as a critical source of productivity growth, but they differ in fundamental ways.

Technology and growth: an overview

During the 1990s, the Federal Reserve has pursued its twin goals of price stability and steady employment with considerable success. But despite--or perhaps because of--this success, concerns about the pace of economic and productivity growth have attracted renewed attention. Many observers ruefully note that the average pace of GDP growth has remained below rates achieved in the 1960s and that a period of rapid investment in computers and other capital equipment has had disappointingly little impact on the productivity numbers. Most of the industrial world has experienced a similar decline ...

Effects of state and local public policies on economic development: an overview

The use of state and local public policy as an instrument of economic development is more controversial than ever. Profound technological and political changes have enhanced the geographic mobility of capital and extended firms' geographic range, intensifying competition among states and localities.

Journal Article
Technology life cycles and state economic development strategies

The extensive literature on state economic development efforts has not been much help to states in developing competitiveness strategies. The materials are primarily descriptive, with little evidence on success or failure of the experiments. In addition, state initiatives have not been viewed in a larger analytical framework that would permit generalizations and understanding of the dynamic processes underlying these changes. ; This article adopts production life-cycle models as a framework in which to analyze systematically the interrelationships between industrial and technological change, ...

Journal Article
U.S economic performance: good fortune, bubble, or new era?

What accounts for the extraordinary performance of the U.S. economy in recent years? How is that we have been able to enjoy such strong economic growth and resulting low unemployment rates without an upturn in inflation? The author reviews the primary explanations offered for these unusually favorable circumstances - that the U.S. economy has been the beneficiary of temporary factors that have held down the inflation rate or that the U.S. economy has entered a new era of intensified competition and rising productivity growth in which inflation is less of a threat. She also discusses ...
