Abstract

L’obiettivo di questo lavoro è di analizzare, utilizzando dati di impresa, il rallentamento della produttività osservato in Italia a partire dagli anni ‘90. L’idea è di verificare se nel periodo 1996-2005 l’andamento della produttività aggregata è imputabile a un rallentamento generalizzato, oppure se è riconducibile a specifici settori. I principali risultati sono tre. In primo luogo, si mostra che l’andamento della produttività del lavoro è sempre spiegato dalla produttività totale dei fattori. Inoltre, si evidenziano dinamiche differenti nei livelli della produttività settoriale e una forte dipendenza della produttività aggregata da quella osservata in alcuni specifici settori. In particolare, i comparti della carta e della chimica spiegano gran parte del declino che si è osservato nel settore manifatturiero fino al 2002-2003. La terza conclusione riguarda il contributo alla crescita dovuto al riposizionamento delle imprese nel mercato. Nella fase della riduzione della produttività (1996-2003), questo contributo è elevato e tale da aver impedito una crisi di dimensioni maggiori, mentre è marginale nella fase della ripresa, quando, al contrario, la performance del settore è legata ad un incremento generalizzato della produttività delle imprese
