What has happened to economic progress?
In a time of extraordinary technological progress, the global community faces a complex challenge known as the 'productivity puzzle.'
Despite the rapid pace of innovation, many countries are seeing sluggish growth in productivity and, consequently, in living standards. At the same time, the critiques of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as a measure of progress have grown louder in the face of mounting environmental crises and ageing populations.
So, are our conventional measures of productivity inadequate? Have we reached a point where innovation alone can no longer drive sustainable growth? Is it time to rethink GDP and switch to alternative metrics to measure progress?
Join UQ economics and business alumni, staff and students for an insightful online lecture that explores these pressing questions, presented by progress and productivity expert Professor Diane Coyle from the University of Cambridge.
