    Productivity growth has slowed across most OECD economies since the mid-2000s.

    Product markets’ deregulation: a more productive, more efficient and more resilient economy?

    This paper assesses the impact of product market deregulation in upstream sectors on the productivity growth of firms in downstream sectors (i.e. those firms using the output of the reformed sectors as inputs in their production process). Relying on a firm level database for the period 2004-2014 covering all Portuguese firms, we show that reforms bring productivity gains already in the short-run and that are sustained in the long-run.
