Abstract: Labor productivity in the nonfarm business sector grew rapidly in the second half of 2013, reaching an average 2.63 percent annual rate. This was the fastest two-quarter pace since the boost of productivity growth associated with the end of the Great Recession and the beginning of the recovery. Such a fast pace of productivity will not last long though.
