Turbulence and productivity in the Netherlands


  • Henry Nieuwenhuijsen
  • Niels Bosma


Onderzoek naar de invloed van toe- en uittreding van bedrijven op de productiviteit van sectoren. De uitkomsten wijzen uit dat toe- en uittreding in de diensten de productiviteit en hiermee de economische groei positief beïnvloeden. In de nijverheid lijkt de toe- en uittreding van bedrijven geen bijdrage te leveren aan de productiviteit. Het onderzoek is gebaseerd op regionale gegevens van het CBS en de Vereniging van Kamers van Koophandel betreffende de periode 1988-1996. Met de gegevens is een model geschat, dat gebaseerd is op de Cobb-Douglas productiefunctie. In het model wordt de productie in een sector en regio bepaald door de inzet van arbeid en kapitaalgoederen (zoals machines, computers en gebouwen) en de mate waarin er toe- en uittreding optreedt. De mate van toe- en uittreding wordt samengevat met de turbulentiemaatstaf, dit is de som van toe- en uittreding van bedrijven gedeeld door het totale aantal bestaande bedrijven. Het model is voor de diensten en de nijverheid apart geschat.
