Competitiveness Research Network (CompNet) Annual Conference 2018 on Economic Growth, Trade and Productivity Dispersion
June 21-22, 2018, Halle (Saale), Germany
Research has documented that productivity varies considerably across firms. These differences are large and persistent, and exist not only across countries but even within comparably narrowly defined sectors and industries. Why does productivity differ so much across firms? If correctly measured, the ubiquitous differences in productivity post many questions to our understanding of markets: Is competition on output and input markets not functioning? Which internal and external (e.g., institutional) factors to the firm hamper the reallocation of factors of production and the diffusion and adoption of new knowledge and technologies? And what do such barriers imply for welfare and economic growth policies? What role do globalization, trade and new technologies play for productivity and its dispersion?
Questions like these will be discussed at the 14th Competitiveness Research Network (CompNet) conference hosted by the Halle Institute for Economic Research (IWH) to be held on June 21-22 2018, in Halle (Saale), Germany. http://www.comp-net.org/conferences/
