Summary

Originally published in 2002, Productivity Issues in Canada is the tenth title in the Investment in Canada Research Series, reissued in 2019. This volume examines productivity growth as the fundamental driver of improvements in real incomes and living standards. Productivity gains increase the economic pie, freeing additional resources that can be invested to meet the needs of the population in areas such as health care, education, the environment, public infrastructures and social security. This collection of research papers on productivity will help better understand the reasons for Canada's relatively weak productivity record and the nature of productivity growth in Canada. The book covers a wide range of topics - productivity trends and determinants; innovation and productivity; investment and productivity; global linkages and productivity; productivity in the new economy; and the social aspects of productivity.
