Abstract

This paper examines the determinants of total factor productivity (TFP) using a GB plant-level dataset. Using a systems-GMM approach, it considers the role of the following four plant characteristics: internal and external knowledge; foreign ownership, multi-plant economies of scale and competition; and spatial spillovers and ‘place’ effects. The sample is disaggregated into manufacturing and services and by technology to show any differences across sectors.
