Organizational Innovations and Economic Growthby Elias Sanidas
Pub. Date: 01/01/2005
Publisher: Elgar, Edward Publishing, Inc.
Distinguishing organizational innovations from technical innovations, Sanidas (economics, U. of Wollongong, Australia) asks if they can be quantitatively and qualitatively demonstrated to positive impacts on economic growth, answering in the affirmative in the context of US Fordist and Japanese just-in-time/quality control lean production processes. He reviews the empirical evidence for the American industrial sectors and applies an econometric analysis of models with various lengths of cross-sectional or pooled time-series data in order to quantitatively explain total factor productivity or labor productivity variable, arguing that lean production methods borrowed by the US from Japan for what he sees as American economic revival from the mid-1980s to the end of the 20th century.
