Productivity measures and the \\"new economy\\"


  • John B. Carlson
  • Mark E. Schweitzer


The U.S. economy's recent extraordinary performance has led some to claim that trend output growth is accelerating to a much higher rate than any we have experienced in a quarter century; they also maintain that the signs of productivity's acceleration have been masked by measurement problems. The authors, however, find scant evidence to support such claims.
