Title: Production Functions

Abstract. A brief survey of how economists developed and currently use production and cost functions to: (a) determine the distribution of income to labor versus owners of capital; (b) assess the ability of firms to adjust to changes in input prices (e.g., via unions or OPEC); (c) measure economies from large scale operations; (d) identify the sources of economic growth; (e) assess the benefits of mergers; and (f) rank firms by their frontier cost efficiency (i.e., benchmarking).
