Economists have lengthy studied the potency of businesses, industries, and whole economies.

An empirical examine productiveness development of states makes use of a tripartite decomposition of work productiveness into technological innovation, development in potency, and the capital deepening caused by way of new company funding, laying off mild on vital debates on their relative significance. The potency of patent legislation is tested in a latest version of financial progress. those contributions are complemented via analyses of methodological difficulties interested by the size, estimation and aggregation of potency indices.

It is clear from the above argument that instead of setting = 0, we could have set = 0, but not both. Similarly we could have chosen to normalize at r~ = 0 instead of setting r} = 0, but again, not both. This too confirms our above stated intuition. Now subtract (49) from (48) and as in the previous subsection and we find still that one producer price can be normalized in each period. 3 Consumer Prices Too Finally we address the question of how many consumer prices can be normalized. In order to make the argument clear we normalize one consumer price in period one and one consumer price in period two and show that, in conjunction with what has been assumed already, this in not consistent with the achievement of a Pareto-optimum; hence only one consumer price can be normalized.

We will show that many of the beneficial effects resulting from synergy may be undone by the observability problem and we will develop testable implications regarding the contract sensitivity (the gradient of the pay-performance relationship) and the expected compensation of the agent in the post merger contract. The idea that the performance of individual business units may be difficult to measure in a multi-divisional business firm and that this measurement problem may stem from the organization of the firm is not new.
