Capital Reallocation and Aggregate Productivity

Russell W. Cooper, Immo Schott

NBER Working Paper No. 19715
Issued in December 2013
NBER Program(s):   EFG

This paper studies the productivity implications of cyclical reallocation. Frictions in the reallocation process are a source of factor misallocation. Cyclical movements in these frictions lead to variations in the degree of reallocation and thus in productivity. These frictions also impact the capital accumulation decision. The effects are quantitatively important in the presence of fluctuations in adjustment frictions and/or the cross sectional variation of profitability shocks.
