The measurement and interpretation of total factor productivity in regulated industries, with an application to Canadian : LamPun-Lee, ShiuAlice. There is evidence that relatively lower productivity in Canada is created by relatively lower competitive intensity. Increasing competitive intensity by removing or reducing sector regimes would have an immediate and substantial impact on innovation.
The broadcasting and telecommunications industry had similar productivity growth in the two countries before , and after it had much slower productivity growth in Canada. The airline industry and the publishing and information services industries had slower productivity growth in Canada than in the United States over the to Determinants of Canadian productivity growth: Issues and prospects (Discussion paper) [Harris, Richard G] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Determinants of Canadian productivity growth: Issues and prospects (Discussion paper)Author: Richard G Harris.
Productivity – the amount produced per hour of work – is one of the main drivers of economic growth, especially in an aging society such as Canada’s. Yet Canada invests less in research and development (R&D) than a number of other similar countries do. This lack of investment may be a critical problem given that R&D can spark innovations that generally lead to higher productivity. This paper examines the impact of information communication technology (ICT), human capital, and human resource management on labour productivity growth in the Canadian tourism/hospitality industries using the Canadian Workplace and Employee Survey from to Feasible generalized least squares and generalized method of moments estimations are Cited by: 7.

Productivity growth in Canadian telecommunications M E L V Y N A. F U S S University of Toronto Abstract. Canadian telecommunications firms do not price proportionately to marginal cost. The prices of toll services tend to be above marginal costs, whereas the prices of basic local services are typically set below marginal costs by regulators.
Canadian telecommunications firms do not price proportionately to marginal cost. The prices of toll services tend to be above marginal costs, whereas the prices of basic local services are typically set below marginal costs by regulators. However, between the to and - to periods, annua- labour productivity l growth in the industry slowed from % to %.
As well, productivity growth in broadcasting and Canadian telecommunications has been low compared with the United States (Baldwin and Gu, ). Sincethe industry has been one. Recent work on regional or interspatial productivity measures has improved our capabilities of interpreting relation productivity levels across firms.
1 In an earlier paper, we reported some preliminary results of applying these methods to three large Canadian telecommunications firms.

In. Labour Productivity Growth % % ICT Contribution to Labour Productivity % % As Table E-1 shows, research indicates that Canada fell behind the U.S. in the adoption of ICT in the last five years of the 20th century.
Labour productivity growth and the contribution of ICT to labour productivity have been lower in Canada than in the U.S. The productivity increase in the second quarter was mainly attributable to goods-producing businesses ( percent) while in service-producing business declined percent.
Productivity in Canada averaged Index Points from untilreaching an all time high of Index Points in the second quarter. increases in the rate of aggregate productivity growth after deregulation. Since we have plant-level data we can introduce indices which delve deeper into how this productivity growth occurred.
These indices indicate that productivity increases were primarily a result of a reallocation of capital towards more productive establishments.

This paper examines how this slowdown was associated with the restructuring that occurred in manufacturing as a result of the increase in excess capacity, the dramatic increase in the. Since the early s, there has been a growing interest in measuring the productivity and efficiency of the telecommunications sector.

While there is uncertainty about future rates of Canadian productivity growth, it is reasonable to expect some increase in trend growth relative to the rates of recent decades.
