Productivity growth has been trending down since the early 1970s in most developed economies. In emerging markets, productivity growth, too, has started to slow significantly around ten years ago. This is a puzzling development, as we see technological innovation taking place at a rapid pace. How can we explain this productivity puzzle, which is among the most pressing public policy issues today? And what does it imply for investors?
Can history be a guide? Let’s discuss with two experts.
Peter Gal, Economist at OECD

moderated by Carmen Hofmann, Secretary General of eabh
Discussion with the audience is planned and all participants are kindly invited to join the discussants for a networking lunch kindly sponsored by Allianz Global Investors GmbH
