Productivity and the Bonus Culture

Andrew Smithers

  • Challenges the pervading myth that the financial crisis is the primary cause of slow growth over the past decade
  • Presents evidence to suggest that slow growth is wholly as a result in adverse changes in demography and productivity
  • Reveals startling information to show that declining productivity in the UK and US is inextricably linked to low investment induced by the bonus culture
  • Reveals a revised theory of how policies can be introduced to revive growth
