In the next page you can find measures of productivity for the private business sector in the

U.S., calculated and reported by the Bureau of Labour Statistics (see www.bls.gov). Using this

data:

  1. Find out share of labour in output (i.e. Sl). What is the long-term trend in this variable?
  2. Often, output per person is taken as a measure of productivity. Compare the two

measures (express both in annual growth rates). Which one is higher – on average?

Why? Discuss: are the two measures similar?

  1. Analyse trends in Total Factor Productivity in the last 50 years (a plot would help). Is low

productivity-growth during recessions actually a technological phenomenon?
