There is a close correspondence between an improvement in investment opportunities owing to exogenous factors and a rise in the price of an industry's output. In fact, if the former resulted in a uniform outward shift of the IPC, it would eventually be completely offset by a fall in P, which would return the industry to the same equilibrium growth position as before, so that the whole benefit would accrue to consumers in the form of a lower price. 5. Where the firm is selling under conditions of simple monopolistic competition, the model's equations must be modified to allow for imperfectly elastic demand for output, and this can be done quite simply.

The evidence, on the whole, favours supply shocks. A major invention, for example, could increase ϱ and this would temporarily increase the rate of investment and growth of both output and labour productivity. Equilibrium growth would be restored by a gradual fall in price which, as shown in Chapter 9, has very similar effects to a fall in ϱ. These out-of-equilibrium industries would thus obey Fabricant's laws, but their productivity growth rates would regress towards the mean. 8. The evidence reviewed in this chapter supports this explanation reasonably well.

In good times, this adverse effect of market imperfections is offset by ‘animal spirits’, so that scrapping has zero social cost. In bad times, however, the cost could be substantial. 10. Taking into account the above, and some other, factors, it seems likely that three-quarters or more of the fall in g − gL in the three countries was reversible, in the sense that a reversion to the smoother and less depressed macroeconomic conditions ruling before 1973 would restore most of productivity growth thus measured.
