Productivity Slowdown

Two very interesting and recent papers on productivity slowdown:

A Theory of Falling Growth and Rising Rents – Philippe Aghion et al.

Low Interest Rates, Market Power, and Productivity Growth – Ernest Liu et al.

Both contribute productivity slowdown to market concentration, yet via different mechanisms (entry cost for Aghion et al. and low interest rate for Ernest Liu et al.).
