Chapter 1: Introduction to Productivity Perspectives
Full access

The Productivity Insights Network was established to change the tone of the productivity debate in research, policy and practice. Productivity is a complex multidimensional concept, which despite being the subject of extant research is still not well understood. Since the 2008 global financial crisis, the persistence of flatlining of productivity growth in the UK has come to define what has been termed the productivity puzzle. This introductory chapter highlights the breadth of contributions from the Co-Investigators of the Productivity Insights Network, with each elaborating on different dimensions of the productivity debate.
