Estimates of the long-run growth rate of Singapore with a CES production function


  • Sriram Shankar
  • B. Bhaskara Rao


This article estimates using the Bayesian methods a Constant Elasticity of Substitution (CES) production function for Singapore for 1960--2009. It is found that the elasticity of substitution is 0.6, technical progress is labour augmenting and the Steady-State Growth Rate (SSGR) of Singapore is about 1.8%.
