ABSTRACT
This article presents the viewpoint of three prominent financial experts on the question of productivity, specifically how important is it to the overall health of the economy and whether it can continue to rise. Ed Yardeni, chief investment strategist at Deutsche Banc; Ethan Harris, economist at Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc; and Susanto Basu, professor at the University of Michigan, were asked for their opinions. Harris thinks productivity gains can be sustained into the future as more technological innovations are incorporated into the economy.
