Estimating Total Factor Productivity In The Romanian Economy
AbstractThis paper analyses the dynamics of the Romanian economy in the 1990-2002 period, both on aggregate terms and using a sectoral decomposition. We worked in a neoclassical framework using a standard Cobb Douglas function with a Hicks neutral technology. We decomposed the economy into four sectors in terms of gross added value and analyzed the output dynamics in each sector.
