Process industries, such as chemicals, aluminium, steel, pulp and paper, and thermal electricity generation, are important basic industries for economic growth in an economy such as the Chinese one. In order to promote improved efficiency and growth-inducing structural change, it is of paramount importance to model the development of such industries in a relevant way. It will then be necessary to go outside the smooth textbook production theory and turn to models incorporating typical features… 
Measures of industry productivity change: the case of thermal electricity generation in Chinese provinces 2000–2014
The typical textbook production theory for a single production unit, assuming substitution possibilities both ex ante and ex post between all factors of production, may not be so well suited for
Dynamic Industry Productivity Measures: The case of thermal electricity generation by South Korean plants 2001-2008 and in Chinese regions 2000-2004*
A framework for applied production theory should focus on the crucial features of the industry to be studied. First of all, to be useful for a dynamic study, a distinction has to be made between the
Short-Run Johansen Frontier-Based Industry Models: Methodological Refinements and Empirical Illustration on Fisheries
This contribution focuses on extending the current state of the art in the short-run Johansen industry model in two ways. First, instead of only considering output-oriented plant capacity, we allow


Technical Progress and Structural Change in the Norwegian Primary Aluminum Industry
The purpose of this paper is to establish short-run industry production functions for the Norwegian primary aluminum industry. This approach follows ideas put forward by Leif Johansen. The key

The purpose of this article is to provide a deeper empirical insight into the structural change of an industry which is more relevant than that obtained by an analysis based on the traditionally
The Interplay between Micro-Frontier and Sectoral Short-Run Production Functions
The authors apply Leif Johansen's (1972) dynamic production function framework to the development of the Finnish brewery industry over a thirty-year time span, 1955 to 1984, based on micro data
