Productivity trends in Europe
Together with research teams in France, Spain and Germany we will examine recent trends in labour productivity in the four countries. We will establish why it is that country-level productivity and employment appears to have responded differently to the financial crisis and accompanying recession. The study will entail a review of existing work, plus new analyses of recent micro data sets for the four countries. The principal output of the project will be a volume written by the four research teams and a conference to disseminate the findings.
