How one views the prospects for economic growth will have profound implications for the long-term performance of the capital markets.

More than 50 years have passed since Robert Solow published the path-breaking model of economic growth for which he won the Nobel Prize in This model proposed that growth occurred not solely from the accumulation of capital and increase in labor, as previously theorized, but also from what Solow called “technological progress”—a term now better known as total-factor-productivity.

Prospects for Growth provides a welcome antidote for both the doomsayers who would wreck the economy and the tree-huggers who would have us worship the earth. In Beisner’s view, the most fundamental problem is theological: “Theology, in all its departments, supplies the guiding principles by which to answer all the pragmatic problems of.

Net TFP, the resulting residual, contains the true measure of technological progress (among other effects).Cited by: Today I will discuss the acceleration of productivity that has occurred over the past decade and our current understanding of its causes.

The year is a somewhat arbitrary dividing point for Gordon as he moves on to Part II of the book. Growth in both productivity and standard of living continued apace until Global growth has continued to soften this year.

Subdued investment in emerging market and developing economies (EMDEs) is dampening potential growth prospects. Risks to the outlook remain firmly on the downside, including the possibility of escalating trade tensions.

Another concern is rising debt, which may make it difficult for EMDEs to. The slowdown in productivity growth in these economies is a problem—and a puzzle.
