New Zealand's Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment talks about thermal comfort and says that when "most people will be thermally comfortable" is, in summer, 66.2 to 57.2 degrees Fahrenheit and, in winter, 64.4 to 71.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
In other words, studies say the optimum temperature for productivity is either 71.6 degrees Fahrenheit or 77 degrees Fahrenheit. If you let government set the thermostat, it could range from 55.4 to 71.6 degrees.
Which leads us to an observation about the arguments over temperature and productivity made at Gaebler.com's "Resources for Entrepreneurs": "In fact, the biggest productivity loss may be the discussion itself."
