Show Summary Details


This chapter reviews developments in the econometric analysis of production, focusing on dynamic interrelated factor demand models. It examines models based on restrictive simplifying assumptions and simple econometric specifications. It provides a Monte Carlo study showing the magnitude of the errors that may arise from using simpler econometric specifications when the structure of production exhibits great complexity. A commentary along with a reply to the commentary are included at the end of the chapter.

Keywords: econometric analysis; productivity measurement; factor demand models; production
