Primary versus Secondary Production Techniques in U.S. Manufacturing
AbstractIn this paper, the authors analyze the determinants of material inputs into individual production activities as a function of their outputs. They use observations on a large cross-section of U.S. manufacturing plants from the Census of Manufactures, including those that make goods primary to other industries, to study differences in production techniques. The authors find that, in most cases, material requirements do not depend on whether goods are made as primary products or as secondary products. They thus elucidate support for the commodity technology model as a useful working hypothesis. Copyright 1997 by The International Association for Research in Income and Wealth.
