Allocative efficiency measurement with endogenous prices


  • Johnson, Andrew L.
  • Ruggiero, John


In the nonparametric measurement of allocative efficiency, output prices are fixed. If prices are endogenous, the overall output in the market determines the allocative efficient point. We develop an alternative semi-nonparametric model that allows prices to be endogenously determined.
