European Integration and Productivity Growth
Abstract: In this study, productivity growth, convergence, and
structural change are examined for various samples of EU members. It is
found that structural change has had a minor impact on aggregate labor
productivity growth, and that there has been significant convergence in
labor productivity at the industrial level during the 1960s and 1970s
within the EU. The productivity convergence has been stronger for the
initial EU members than samples incuding new members.
