Abstract

In his 2005 paper in this journal, Kuosmanen argues that Shephard’s specification of weak disposability in activity analysis (DEA) models is not correct. We show that Shephard’s specification does satisfy weak disposability and is the “smallest” technology to do so. Copyright 2007, Oxford University Press.
