Abstract

This paper demonstrates that the bootstrap procedure suggested by Ferrier and Hirschberg (1997) gives inconsistent estimates. A very simple example is given to illustrate the statis- tical issues underlying nonparametric efficiency measurement and the problems with the Fer- rier/Hirschberg approach, and may serve as a primer on bootstrapping in nonparametric models of production processes.
