Generation and Distribution of Total Factor Productivity Gains in US Industries
This study estimates productivity gains and their distribution among inputs and outputs for American industries over the period 1987-2011 using the traditional surplus accounting method. Total Factor Productivity (TFP) change is traditionally defined as the growth rate of output minus the growth rate of inputs. Since TFP changes determine welfare via price variations, a key issue is to assess which of the inputs and outputs recover price advantages.
