Posted on February 17, by Scott Alexander I got many good responses to my Considerations On Cost Disease post, both in the comments and elsewhere.
A lot of people thought the explanation was obvious; unfortunately, they all disagreed on what the obvious explanation was. Below are some of the responses I found most interesting.
So, what is really happening? I think Scott nearly gets there. Things cost 10 times as much, 10 times more than they used to and 10 times more than in other countries. So where is it going? The number of people it takes to produce these goods is skyrocketing.
Labor productivity — number of people per quality adjusted output — declined by a factor of 10 in these areas. It pretty much has to be that: How can that happen?
Our machines are better than ever, as Scott points out. Well, we and especially we economists pay too much attention to snazzy gadgets. Productivity depends on organizations not just on gadgets.
Southwest figured out how to turn an airplane around in 20 minutes, and it still takes United an hour.
Contrariwise, I think we know where the extra people are. Most large public school systems spend more than half their budget on administrators. Construction sites have always had a lot of people standing around for every one actually working the machine.
But now for every person operating the machine there is an army of planners, regulators, lawyers, administrative staff, consultants and so on. I welcome pointers to good graphs and numbers on this sort of thing. So, my bottom line: Well, how does bloat come about?
Regulations and law are, as Scott mentions, part of the problem. These are all areas either run by the government or with large government involvement.
But the real key is, I think lack of competition.I am sorry if this comes across as snarky but it really has to be said. “CEO pay is mostly justified” is not “A known fact”.
