Real wages, productivity and economic growth in the G7, 1960-2002
AbstractThis paper investigates empirical real wage and productivity dynamics in the G7 countries using annual data for 1960-2002. The findings suggest that the level of labor productivity is positively related to GDP growth in all countries, and real wages are positively related to growth in some of them. The results tend to confirm the 'profit paradox'. This postulates a positive relationship between economic growth and the aggregate profit share, and suggests that the frequent support of business interests for deflationary economic policies is a puzzle.
