Information technology and labour productivity growth : an empirical analysis for Canada and the United States by Surendra Gera ( Book )
7 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Examines two questions for Canada and the United States, using a set of Organisation for Economic Cooperation & Development databases: the extent to which investments in information technology (IT) have contributed to labour productivity growth; and whether domestic and international IT research and development spillovers are important for labour productivity growth. Begins with a literature review of recent empirical studies, then describes the empirical model and the data sources used. Regression results are presented for the two countries and policy issues raised by the analysis are discussed

Capital-embodied technical change and the productivity growth slowdown in Canada by Surendra Gera ( Book )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Previous empirical studies on productivity growth have been inconclusive in identifying the causes of the slowdown since 1973. The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of the causes of the slowdown by estimating the effects of capital-embodied technical change (the vintage effect, whereby old capital in mature industries is less productive than new capital) on productivity growth in Canada. It examines the implications of 3 issues for the slowdown: whether the vintage effect is an important factor; the implications of the "catch-up" effect for Canadian industries; the impact of growth in the capital-labour ratio. The study describes the empirical model, gives data & basic statistics & then provides the empirical analysis. Finally, it identifies sources of productivity slowdown

9 editions published in 1999 in English and French and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper analyzes the impact of technology transfers and spillovers from inward foreign direct investment (FDI) on the production cost and structure of Canadian industries. Specifically, it estimates the effects of inward FDI on the cost of production, and it examines the impact of FDI on the structure of production, i.e., the effects on demand for factors such as capital, labour, intermediate goods and R&D capital. The analysis controls for domestic and international R&D spillovers
Technology and the demand for skills : an industry-level analysis by Surendra Gera ( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper examines the effect of technological change on the relative demand for skilled workers across Canadian industries. Using data from a number of Canadian labour market surveys, the paper examines whether skill intensity has risen across industries over the 1981-1994 period, and whether biased technological change is the main cause of the shift in demand toward skilled workers. The paper develops two industry-based skill measures: one based on the skill classification identified in the National Occupational Classification (NOC), and the other based on the skill classification scheme proposed by Wolff and Baumol. It then combines data on skills with four industry-level measures of technology: the stock of research and development (R&D), the stock of patents used by the industry, total factor productivity, and the age of the capital stock
