  3. 3. Growth and Business Cycles : Swedish Manufacturing Industry 1952-2001

    Författare :Camilla Maria Kyllikki Josephson; Lennart Schön; Deirdre Nansen MC Closkey; Sweden Lund University Economic History; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Contemporary history; Manufacturing industry; Knowledge accumulation; The cointegrated VAR model; Business cycles; Economic growth; TFP growth;

    Sammanfattning : This study shows that the mechanisms behind knowledge accumulation and the sources of productivity growth differ from industry to industry depending on what is produced and what technology is used. Although it is apparent to most researchers in the field that the only way to explain long-run growth in output per capita is through technological progress and accumulation of knowledge that counteract the dampening effect of diminishing returns, we are still in the dark about how such mechanisms operate.
