Abstract Share this page

This paper examines the impact of high technology on multifactor productivity and pricecost margins. Principal components obtained from five technology variables are related to multifactor productivity and price-cost margin. A negative and significant relationship between price-cost margin and high technology methods when industry effects are excluded, becomes insignificant in the industry effects specification. The price-cost margin equations suggest that prior findings of a negative relationship between profitability and high technology may result from omitting industry effects. For multifactor productivity, there is a positive impact from high technology regardless of whether the specification includes industry effects.
