A New Class of Production Functions and an Argument Against Purely Labor-Augmenting Technical Change

Abstract

This paper follows Jones (2005) in his approach to deriving the global production function from microfoundations. His framework is generalized by allowing for dependence between the Pareto distributions of laborand capital-augmenting developments. Using the Clayton copula family to capture this dependence, we derive a “Clayton-Pareto” class of production… (More)
