Hide / Show Abstract

A number of studies indicate that multifactor productivity growth (MFP) behaves cyclically, i.e. it increases in an upturn and declines in a downturn. This has sometimes been interpreted as a paradox, as MFP has traditionally been perceived as exogenous technological change, which should typically not behave cyclically.
