What do a tightening labor market, increased wages, a maturing business cycle, and subdued investments have in common? They all add up to a slowing of the potential growth rate for the U.S. economy.  Productivity growth is the vital component for sustaining business profitability in such an environment and we have recently completed a new report to help you address the impacts of productivity on both a national and global scale.
 
Two historical episodes offer parallels. U.S. real wages grew strongly in the mid-1980s and in the late-1990s, posing a headwind to profits growth. In both periods, a strong positive boost from productivity growth helped mitigate some of the downside to business profits. In contrast, the current trend in productivity growth is weak, which could portend a significant challenge to business profitability ahead.
