Abstract

The recession left its mark on global productivity, which fell in 2009. The productivity growth differential between the United States and Europe increased dramatically in 2009. Average long-term growth of labour productivity in advanced economies has stalled since 2000. The gradual improvement in world productivity is due to emerging and developing economies. In particular the long-term increase in TFP growth reflects a strengthening of the efficiency with which emerging and developing economies use labour and capital in productive economic activity.
