Global labor productivity growth stabilized in 2016 vis-à-vis 2015, bringing the ongoing decline of the past 4-5 years to a halt. However, when looking at total factor productivity (TFP) growth, negative growth rates persisted into 2016 though at slightly more moderate levels than in 2015 – as weak employment and capital growth overcompensated the slowdown in global output growth. For 2017 we project a moderate uptick in labor productivity growth due to cyclical forces, though by no means a return to pre-crisis growth rates or the long term trend. US labor productivity growth improves significantly from its 2016 performance, as labor growth – especially total hours growth – is expected to slow more due to tightening labor markets.
