Articles and reports: 11F0027M2014089


This paper examines two aspects of productivity growth in Canada's broadcasting and telecommunications industry.

The second is the extent to which aggregate labour productivity growth and MFP growth came from within-firm growth, and from the effect of reallocation due to firm entry and exit and within incumbents' the dynamic forces associated with competitive change.
