Joint BIS-IMF-OECD conference by the Global Forum on Productivity on "Weak productivity: the role of financial factors and policies"
Financial systems play a vital role in boosting productivity growth by allocating resources efficiently and facilitating investment and innovation. But they are also prone to costly booms and busts, which can leave deep scars on the productive tissue of the economy. Indeed, in the aftermath of the 2008 global financial crisis, productivity growth has stagnated in advanced economies despite very easy monetary conditions. Yet, even before the crisis productivity had already been slowing in several countries. To what extent are these developments explained by financial factors and policy actions? What policies are needed today to speed up the recovery in productivity growth? The organising committee is soliciting papers from researchers working in policy institutions and academia. Topics: - Financial factors and resource misallocation, - Financial factors and within-firm productivity performance, - Monetary policy, financial policies and productivity performance.
