Abstract

Die Bemühungen der politischen Entscheidungsträger, das Produktionswachstum nachhaltig anzu-kurbeln, können durch einen Trade-Off zwischen Produktivitätssteigerung und Schaffung von Arbeitsplätzen behindert werden. Der vorliegende Artikel erbringt empirische Belege dafür, dass heute das negative Verhältnis zwischen Produktivitätssteigerung und Zunahme der Beschäftigung, wie man es in den 1960er und 70er Jahren beobachtete, nicht mehr besteht. Dieses Ergebnis hält auch alter-nativen Messmethoden und der Berücksichtigung anderer erklärender Variablen stand und könnte eine gute Nachricht für die Politiker sein, die bestrebt sind, die 'Höchstgeschwindigkeit' für das Wirtschaftswachstum anzuheben.
