Abstract

The object of study is the dynamic of capital accumulation in Spain between 1999 and 2012, a period in which the Spanish economy has had first a system of fixed exchange rates, and then monetary integration within the Eurozone. Investment has been largely driven by the revaluation of assets related to construction (mainly residential), which has generated a profound reshaping of the economic structure. The relationship between investment, productivity and costs is first approached from a macroeconomic perspective, followed with an analysis of the composition by assets and sectors. It is shown that the most dynamic sectors have been those with relative low technical composition of capital, leading to absolute declines in labour productivity, as well as a price-effect that has completely distorted the reproduction of the Spanish economy.
