"La era de la productividad" describe de qué manera la baja productividad de América Latina y el Caribe impide que la región se ponga a la par de los países del mundo desarrollado. Los autores indagan más allá de las explicaciones macroeconómicas tradicionales y profundizan hasta llegar al nivel de las industrias y las empresas para descubrir sus causas. En este libro se examina el crecimiento de la productividad enfocándose en la extrema heterogeneidad de los sectores y las empresas, resaltando la importancia de las políticas públicas que hacen que las empresas prosperen y se expandan. Por otra parte, se centra en un sector crítico, el de los servicios, en particular el sector transporte y el comercio minorista, de importantes repercusiones para el resto de la economía. Finalmente, se cuestiona y se descarta el argumento de que la región está condenada al estancamiento y se analizan varios mecanismos de políticas públicas que pueden transformar sus economías.
