Public Capital and Long-Run Costs in U.K. Manufacturing
A model of U.K. manufacturing production that incorporates the inputs of public as well as private capital is specified and estimated. The model is then used to measure the contribution of public capital to productivity growth over the period 1966 to 1990. It is found that, before 1980, the public and private capital contributions were of comparable magnitude. After 1980, the contribution of public capital declined significantly.
