Demand for Imports, Supply of Exports and Technical Progress: Results from a GNP Function Estimate for Switzerland

Author

  • Peter Kugler

Abstract

The application of the translog GNP function approach to Swiss data indicates that imported inputs seem to be the most important channel for technical change, whereas the production of exports and domestic sales does not seem to be strongly different with respect to the implementation of technical change.
