    Abstract

    In this article, the author proposes a resolution for the long-standing controversy over depreciation. He develops, from capital theory, income and wealth accounting capital concepts and compares them with those from production analysis and productivity measurement. The author concludes that depreciation in economic accounts is exactly the same measurement as in production analysis. As for empirical implications, market-based measures of depreciation are appropriate for economic accounts, provided they are appropriate empirical measures of economic depreciation.
