  • The first part of this thesis looks at issues in index number theory. By using techniques developed in differential geometry, it is shown that the socalled index number problem can be resolved by the development of a special economic derivative operator constructed for this purpose. This derivative is shown to give rise to a unique differential geometric index number which is then demonstrated to equal the Divisia index. It is then shown in the second chapter (co-authored with Eric Weinstein… CONTINUE READING
