Abstract

El presente documento de trabajo pretende indagar, en una primera aproximacidn, la relacidn entre crecimiento de servicios y crecimiento econdmico a partir del andlisis de productividad en 10s servicios a empresas en Europa. Puesto que 10s servicios son el sector mayoritario dentro de la economias mds avanzadas, la evolucidn de su productividad es un factor decisivo en Ias tendencias actuales del crecimiento econdmico y se convierte, por consiguiente, en referncia c h e para to& aquella politica econdmica destinada a mejorar la estabilidad y el bienestar. Para analizar seriamente la cuestidn es necesario remitirse a dos consideraciones prm'as: I) resulta imprescindible discutir sobre las medidas de productividad utilizadas en 10s servicios, siempre in&cientes y a menudo contradictorias; yJ 2) no puede intrapolarse la productividad deducida de la evolucidn general del sector servicios a1 conjunto de sus heterogheos subsectores. En este sentido, 10s servicios a empresas avanzados son diferentes y protagonizan un papel nada desdeiiable para la actuacidn politica. Por varios motivos. Primero, porque, aunque en 10s tiltimos aiios, la fierte absorcidn de empleo ha hecho diminuir el crecimiento de su productividad, &ta sigue mantenibndose en un niveles considerablemente altos respecto a otros sectores econdmicos. Segundo, por la capacidad del sector de mejorar la productividad de las empresas clientes y, tercero, por la fierte presencia del sector en 10s parses mcis desarrollados. De todo ello, se deduce la oportunidad de sostener, extender y fomentar la productividad de 10s servicios a empresas.
