A study on the export of digital activities
Against a backdrop of slowing rates of measured productivity growth, questions have been raised about the conceptual basis of GDP and output and whether current compilation methods are adequate to capture output and productivity. In a time where more and more economic activities take place digitally these questions are especially relevant. This experimental study looks into the export of so-called digitized products and services of the Dutch economy. Demand for and supply of digitized products and services has increased rapidly over the last few years, which underlines the importance of specifying and quantifying the effect of digitalisation on the Dutch economy.
