Productivity Growth in the Digital Age Digital transformation represents an opportunity for improving productivity growth by enabling innovation and reducing the costs of a range of business processes. Yet despite the rapid advance of digital technologies, aggregate productivityFile Size: KB.

Modern information technology is based on semiconductor technology used in comput-ers and telecommunications equipment.

Although Jones' focus is mainly on the US, we would reach similar conclusions when analyzing the situation for European countries1.

THE FUTURE OF JAPAN: REIGNITING PRODUCTIVITY AND GROWTH Over the course of two painful “lost decades,” Japan has lost much of its competitive edge.

Foreign direct investment (FDI) is an integral part of an open and effective such as economic growth, technology transfer, human capital, competition, the fact that, while gross returns on investment can be very high in Africa, the effect is more than counterbalanced by high File Size: KB. Technology is central to growth in agricultural productivity, yet across many parts of the developing world, readily available technology is never taken up. We investigate demand-side constraints of the technology equation to analyze factors that might influence producers, particularly poor producers, to adopt modern technology.
