10 Expanding the Boundary of the Accounts Over the years, researchers interested in issues other than the sources of growth have advocated and developed expanded and better-integrated sets of accounts. Kendrick (1961), Ruggles and Ruggles (1982), and Eisner (1989) extended the NIPAs to better analyze business, household, and governmental decision making. This section discusses the various extensions of the existing accounts required to meet some of the needs raised by these researchers and those raised by the needs of researchers interested in the sources of economic growth.

These remaining differences between the BEA and BLS estimates have led many researchers to construct their own measures of productivity, particularly for studying the “new economy” of the late 1990s. Results of these studies have sometimes differed significantly, depending partly on data sources and the level of detail provided, leading to differing interpretations of the sources of productivity growth. For example, Nordhaus (2002) found faster labor productivity growth for the nonfarm business sector using the BEA’s value-added by industry data rather than the official BLS measure.

An aggregate production account using the NIPAs, however, requires deducting output taxes from consumption and each of the other components of GDP to transform it from an expenditure to a production account valued at producer prices. Decomposition of Proprietor’s Income into Labor and Capital Components The NIPAs present a single estimate for proprietor’s income with no decomposition of the return to the proprietor for his or her labor and the return to the capital invested in the business. A complete production account, however, requires the decomposition of returns from production into labor and capital.
