Hide / Show Abstract

Capital productivity shows how efficiently capital is used to generate output. It reflects the joint influence of labour input per unit of capital used and multifactor productivity (MFP); the latter reflecting the overall efficiency of production. Investment in information and communication technologies (ICT) in particular enables new technologies to enter the production process and is seen as an important driver of productivity growth.
