Manufacturing Productivity in Portugal in a Comparative Perspective
Luís Peres Lopes


This article presents and uses the technique of the "industry of origin approach" developed by the "International Comparisons of Output and Productivity" for a benchmark comparison of real output and productivity in Portugal and in the UK in the year of 1987. It is further extrapolated backwards to 1977 and forwards to 1990 to get a dynamic view of the productivity performance.
