New sources of growth
Source: SourceOECD Social Issues/Migration/Health, Volume 2010, Number 6, May 2010 , pp. 8-7
Abstract:A new stream of research argues that firms' spending on new knowledge, i.e. investment in intangible assets, contributes to their output growth not only at the time of investment but also in later years. Estimates of the contribution of intangible assets to labour productivity growth show that, in some countries, they explain a good portion of multifactor productivity growth (a measure of technological change and the inability to fully measure the sources of economic performance).
