Abstract

This study examines labor and capital service inputs as well as multi-factor productivity growth in Japan and compares results to eight other industrial nations using OECD's productivity data from 1985 to 2007. The study reveals that since 1991 Japan's economic growth has been negatively measured by all three discriminant functions identified.
