Editor’s Overview


  • Andrew Sharpe



THIS MARKS THE 20th issue of the International Productivity Monitor (IPM). The Centre for the Study of Living Standards would like to thank Industry Canada for the financial support that has made the publication of the IPM possible over the past decade. This issue contains five articles on: the impact of the economic crisis on potential output and productivity growth in Canada; the sensitivity of estimates of Canada-U.S. capital intensity and multifactor productivity gaps to depreciation assumptions; a sectoral and provincial decomposition of Canada’s post-2000 labour productivity slowdown; the role of creative destruction in Finnish productivity performance; and the influence of public policy on manufacturing productivity growth in India.
