|Abstract:||This paper introduces a concept of a latent resource to explain the seemingly low total factor productivity estimated for Singapore. It found that total factor productivity growth in the economy is not as dismal as estimated in other studies if the factor shares used in the computation are nearer to those of developed industrialized economies. The existence of a latent resource also explains the discrepancy in factor shares reported in published information as compared to the empirically derived figures. From this, the policy implication is that measures to maintain the latent resource become important for the Singapore economy to remain internationally competitive.|
