While productivity can be hard to measure, capital and labour are key indications of a nation’s output. In a study of these factors by KPMG, the conclusions for Australia were not encouraging.

However, adjustments to key areas including investment in infrastructure, regulatory reform, competition policy, dissemination of new technologies, insolvency law reform, university funding and tax reform, can help industry and Government unlock productivity.

This KPMG Economics report, The role of capital and labour in driving economic growth in Australia, explores:

  • Australia’s productivity status
  • the role of capital and labour in explaining productivity
  • the impact of productivity growth on economic output
  • what governments should do to foster productivity, and more.
