Description: A distinctive feature of Finnish economic growth, especially since the Second World War, has been the major significance of growth in productivity. Change in productivity is the part of growth in output that is not explained by change in the use of input(s) or compensation of inputs. Growth in total productivity depicts not only technological development and increased efficiency but also the effects from improved quality of inputs, management, logistics and organisation.
