Quarterly Bulletin 1986 Q2
Published on 01 June 1986

A recurring issue of considerable relevance at present is whether sufficient resources are being devoted to laying the foundations for continued economic growth. This question embraces a number of factors including education, training and fixed capital expenditure. This article considers the last of these topics. It describes trends in investment and the capital stock since the mid-J960s. The effects on output per employee of changes in capital deepening and in the utilisation of employed capital and labour are also discussed.
