Cracking Canada's Productivity Conundrum
Source: Insitute for Research on Public Policy
From the news release:
Economic growth in Canada will increasingly depend on productivity, and policy- makers will have to look for new measures to boost the demand and supply of innovation if we are to overcome the productivity conundrum, according to a new study published by the Institute for Research on Public Policy (IRPP).
Canada’s economic growth in the past decade has been due to the sharp rise in the price of natural resources and strong labour force growth. But they alone will not sustain the growth of the Canadian economy in the future, argues IRPP Research Fellow Someshwar Rao, author of the new IRPP study, Cracking Canada’s Productivity Conundrum.
In his study, Rao examines the magnitude and nature of Canada’s productivity challenges and offers policy directions to address them.
