Author: Röller, Lars-Hendrik ; Good, David H ; Nadiri, M. Ishaq ; Sickles, Robin CINSEAD Area: Economics and Political Science In: Productivity issues in services at the micro level: a special issue of the Journal of productivity analysis - Mairesse, Jacques;Griliches, Zvi - 1993 - Book Language: EnglishDescription: p. 115-125.Type of document: INSEAD ChapterAbstract: In this paper we carry out technical efficiency and productivity growth comparisons among the four largest European carriers and eight of their American counterparts. The time period of our comparisons is 1976 through 1986. This is a particularly interesting period since it begins just after the informal steps toward deregulation in the United States and ends just prior to the introduction of the first wave of reforms by the Council of Ministers in Europe. We also identify the potential efficiency gains of the European liberalization by comparing efficiency differences between the two carrier groups. The reductions in inefficiency describe the amount that inputs can be decreased without altering output
