The Service Industries

  • Frank Livesey
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter begins by discussing the problem of classifying these industries before going on to deal with productivity and prices in a range of countries. It also discusses economic aspects, such as employment and value added, of the service industries in Britain and in other European countries. Particular service industries such as retailing, tourism and financial services are then analysed as exemplars of the sector.
