dc.description.abstractWe estimate the relative roles of factor inputs and productivity in explaining thelevel of economic development, which is measured as output per worker. For alarge sample of countries, we show that alternative identifying productivityassumptions and alternative measures of human capital have a large impact onthe relative weights of factor inputs and productivity in a decomposition ofoutput per worker. For a sample of OECD countries, we find that productivityhas almost no role in explaining cross-country differences in output per worker.This result supports the reasoning of a traditional neoclassical growth model.en_US
