The concept of the marginal productivity of an input in a productive process is a particularly important idea in economic analysis, because under competitive conditions, the equilibrium price of a factor of production (including wages, interest etc) will tend toward equality with its marginal productivity. Marginal productivity is the increase in the value of output that can be produced by adding in one more unit of the particular input while holding other inputs constant. Thus the higher the productivity of a factor of production, the higher the income that may be expected to accrue to its providers, and anything that raises overall levels of productivity within a society may be expected to increase the average overall prosperity of the society as a whole.
