Farm Mechanization and the Farm Labor Market: A Socioeconomic Model of Induced Innovation
AbstractA cost function approach of induced innovation is used to measure the biases in U.S. agricultural technology between 1969-1999. The rate of technological change is explained by socioeconomic variables. The post-IRCA results show that an increasingly illegal workforce significantly induces contract labor using technology, and significantly induces capital saving technology.
