Title: Tfp growth in British and German manufacturing, 1950 - 1996
Authors: Crafts, Nicholas
Mills, Terence C.
Issue Date: 2001
Publisher: © Loughborough University
Abstract: The current U.K. government has put improving productivity at the top of the policy agenda. Its most recent report drew attention to a shortfall in total factor productivity (TFP) as an important part of the British labour productivity gap that is revealed by international comparisons (HM Treasury, 2000). This reflects the now pervasive use of neoclassical growth accounting to benchmark productivity performance.
