Testing cost vs. profit function
The empirical literature on estimation of production technology mostly focuses on estimation of dual cost functions. Estimation of a profit function is not that common. Here, we formally test whether the production technology should be represented by a cost or profit function. We also derive elasticities associated with the long-run profit function from the estimated cost function.
