Cracking Canada’s Productivity Conundrum debt


Cracking Canada’s Productivity Conundrum debt

Beneath the veneer of Canada’s stellar economic performance in the 2000s lies the conundrum of slow productivity growth. Most of Canada’s economic strength over the past 10 years has been due to strong labour force growth and sharp increases in prices for Canada’s natural resources. But as IRPP Research Fellow Someshwar Rao shows in this study, neither of these can sustain the growth capacity of the Canadian economy in the future. Economic growth will increasingly depend on productivity — the ability to create more economic value by working smarter.
