Accounting for Growth and Productivity: Finnish Multi-Factor Productivity 1975-99
This paper presents new calculations for the multi-factor productivity of the nonresidential market production in Finland. The new methodology entails quality corrected measures of capital and labour services. The results reinforce the view of a shift taking place in the Finnish growth pattern after the early 1990s recession, from extensive to intensive growth. The exception is the extensive contribution of information and communication capital. Multi-factor productivity has been the engine of growth during the whole observation period from 1975 to 1999, but it experienced a significant step-up in the 1990s.
