Global Productivity: Trends, Drivers, and Policies. -Edited by Alistair Dieppe. Washington, DC: World Bank.2021

About The Book:

The World Bank has created an extraordinary book on productivity, covering a large group of countries and using a wide variety of data sources. There is an emphasis on emerging and developing economies, whereas the prior literature has concentrated on developed economies. The book seeks to understand growth patterns and quantify the role of (among other things) the reallocation of factors, technological change, and the impact of natural disasters, including the COVID-19 pandemic.

This book is a must-read for specialists in emerging economies, but also provides deep insights for anyone interested in economic growth and productivity.
