Abstract

This article studies the firm-level productivity convergence process in the 1990s and the 2000s in France. The speed of convergence has slowed during the course of the 1990s, a fact which is explained principally by the acceleration of the productivity of firms on the technological frontier. Evidence is presented that information technology and globalisation may have had a bigger impact on the most productive firms.
