Abstract:

From the Introduction: Following the introductory Chapter are 13 subject-matter and two summary Chapters. Because there is a close statistical and analytical relationship between the growth and level comparisons, each subject-matter Chapter deals with both. Chapter II is a statement of the phenomenon to be studied, that is, the growth experience of the countries (Canada, U.S., Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, U.K., Italy) between 1950 and 1962, and the levels of real income in 1960. Chapter III describes the general framework of the Study and develops the input weighing system of the factor shares. Employment, hours of work, and the age-sex and education characteristics of the labour force are presented in Chapters IV, V, and VI and summarized in Chapter VII. The contributions of capital investment in equipment and structures, housing, inventories, land and foreign assets, are described in Chapters VIII and IX. Factor input contributions are brought together and summarized in Chapter X. The elements of growth or income differences that are not accounted for by inputs of labour, capital and land are attributed to output per unit of input and subjected to further specification. Chapters XI to XIV discuss the productivity implications of resource allocation, economies of scale, and cyclical variations in demand and weather. Chapters XV and XVI draw together and summarize the input and productivity components of growth and level comparisons.
