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