This paper revisits the discussion about the contribution of Total Factor Productivity (TFP) growth to Indonesia's economic growth during 1970-2007. It re-estimates the contribution of TFP to economic growth during this period on the basis of new estimates of GDP, capital stock, education-adjusted employment, and factor income shares. After accounting for the growth of capital stock and education-adjusted employment, the residual TFP growth was on average -0.2% per year during 1971-2007. Capital stock growth and education-augmented employment growth explained 70% and 34%, respectively, and TFP growth -4%.
