Convex and nonconvex input-oriented technical and economic capacity measures: An empirical comparison

Abstract : This contribution has two main objectives. First, it aims to compare empirically input-oriented technical and economic capacity notions. Second, it aims to compare these capacity notions on both convex and nonconvex technologies. After defining these capacity notions, an empirical comparison is performed using a secondary data set containing data of French fruit producers. Anticipating two key empirical conclusions, we find that all these different capacity notions follow different distributions, and also that these distributions almost always differ under convex and nonconvex technologies.
