Carnegie-Rochester-NYU Conference on Public Policy "Accounting for Slow Growth: Consumers, Producers, or Governments?"
From the depths of the Great Recession, economic growth in the US and many other countries has been persistent but slow. Economists offer three 1. Consumers. Aggregate demand growth has been insufficient and demandstimulus has been severely limited; 2. Producers. There is less dynamism; ( including innovation and re-allocation of productive resources) in the US economy, leading to a decline in total factor productivity growth; 3. Governments. Uncertainty in monetary, fiscal, and regulatory policy has been a key drag on growth. We welcome papers exploring the merits of these three basic explanations for the slow growth phenomenon. Papers that seek to distinguish among these explanations would be especially desirable.
