What Determines Productivity

TFP measures that use physical quantities as output mea-sures rather than revenues actually exhibit even more variation than do revenue-based measures as documented in Lucia Foster John Haltiwanger and Syverson 2008 Hsieh and Klenow 2009 also find greater productivity dispersion in their TFP measures that use quantity proxies...
