Abstract

This report presents some results on patterns of technology diffusion in OECD countries and develops a number of measures of equipment-embodied technology diffusion. These measures are then used to analyse the determinants of productivity growth and competitiveness at the industry level, with more specific focus on the role of technology development and diffusion. The methodology used makes it possible to examine a number of analytical issues, and to draw implications for policy.
