Accounting for growth in Spain, the Basque Country (and its three Historic Territories), Navarre, and Madrid since 1965
AbstractThis paper analyzes the economic growth for Spain, the Basque Country (and its three historic territories), Navarre, and Madrid since 1965. Overall, capital and total factor productivity (TFP) growth were the main engines of output growth since 1965. Three different periods are characterized. Despite the recent period 1995-2008 has exhibited a poor TFP growth, the subperiod 2003-2007 has shown an important revival for output, labor productivity, and TFP growth rates. This seems to be consistent with an innovation-driven stage. Finally, some caution is suggested on the results for the Basque Country since they change substantially depending on the source of data employed. Despite divergences have narrowed recently, the Basque Statistics Office offers generally higher growth rates for gross value added than those provided by the Spanish counterpart.
