Abstract
Several discussions have taken place arguing whether technology is influencing in the productivity of the economy and furthermore if it is worth it to dedicate resources to the development and strategy of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Productivity, therefore, becomes an important topic of discussion to understand the impact of technology at a macro-economic perspective and its applicability at a micro level. Our thesis aims to find a causal relationship between IDI and Labor Productivity through an econometric model (Panel Data) using as sample the European Union Economies. The result denotes a statistical relevance in the relationship between technology and labor productivity, supporting previous findings that only... (More)
Several discussions have taken place arguing whether technology is influencing in the productivity of the economy and furthermore if it is worth it to dedicate resources to the development and strategy of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Productivity, therefore, becomes an important topic of discussion to understand the impact of technology at a macro-economic perspective and its applicability at a micro level. Our thesis aims to find a causal relationship between IDI and Labor Productivity through an econometric model (Panel Data) using as sample the European Union Economies. The result denotes a statistical relevance in the relationship between technology and labor productivity, supporting previous findings that only measure the investment on ICT rather than the entire complexity of it, like skills and usage, that the IDI index measure. The outcomes aim to be applicable to motivate not only nations but firms in how they should adapt to new technologies to be resilient. (Less)
