Why is productivity important?

Productivity is a value-added process that can effectively raise living standards from a governmental, commercial and consumer perspective.

Governmental: Increasing economic growth can lead to larger tax payments for governments. Governments can invest more towards infrastructure and social services e.g. health care, education, welfare, public transportation, public funding and critical research.

Commercial: Higher efficiencies can result in increased margins and lower costs. This can allow for better compensation for employees, higher working capital and improved competitiveness.

Consumer: Productivity can potentially reduce price points and minimize the necessary working hours for the participants within an economy while retaining high levels of consumption.
