Abstract:

This note briefly examines three issues in response to the Reynolds paper on productivity in UK retailing. First, it examines whether aggregate statistics on retail productivity provide an accurate assessment of productivity trends in the sector. Second, it discusses the potential contribution that analysis with firm level data can make to understanding retailing performance. Third, it summarises some OECD work that examined the impact of regulation on retailing productivity.
