Economic Perspectives, 23, No. 1, February 1999
The new view of growth and business cycles
Evidence on the cost of business equipment investment supports a new way of understanding growth and business cycles. The equipment price has been falling for most of the last 40 years and it tends to fall more the faster the economy is growing. This suggests that technological change embodied in new capital equipment has a substantial effect on growth and business cycles.
