Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the empirical basis for the allocation of investment flows by industry and by asset. It suggests that inconsistencies between industry and asset measures of capital and firm and establishment measures reflect dramatically different methodologies. This chapter recommends the integration of micro and macro approaches to capital measurement and a redesign of surveys to generate better microdata on investment flows and capital stocks.

Keywords: investment flows; capital measurement; industry; microdata; capital stocks; asset measures
