Productivity, Volume 3

Information Technology and the American Growth Resurgence

About the Authors

Dale W. Jorgenson is Samuel W. Morris University Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

Mun S. Ho is Visiting Fellow at Harvard’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science.


“Jorgenson and his talented coauthors Ho and Stiroh have been among the leaders in analyzing the post-1995 revival in American productivity growth. Notable in this volume is their pathbreaking analysis of human capital, with its prediction that the contribution of higher labor quality to U.S. economic growth will steadily diminish over the next few decades. Lovers of controversy will relish the authors' unique interpretation of ‘the demise’ of growth accounting.”
