The Household Production Function Approach to Valuing Climate: The
, 1693
"... According to household production function theory households combine marketed goods and nonmarket environmental goods to produce service flows of direct value to the household. This readily explains why, as an input to household production activities, households might have preferences over the clima ..."

Economic Theory as a Guide for the Specification and Interpretation of Empirical Household Production Functions
"... We employ a model of utility maximization with household production to derive empirical hybrid production functions and interpretations of the e↵ects of observable inputs on household products when unobserved inputs are optimally chosen by households. Instrumental variable approaches cannot yield ..."

, 1997
"... This paper analyzes data on 11,600 students and their teachers who were randomly assigned to different size classes from kindergarten through third grade. Statistical methods are used to adjust for nonrandom attrition and transitions between classes. The main conclusions are (1) on average, performa ..."

This paper analyzes data on 11,600 students and their teachers who were randomly assigned to different size classes from kindergarten through third grade. Statistical methods are used to adjust for nonrandom attrition and transitions between classes. The main conclusions are (1) on average, performance on standardized tests increases by four percentile points the �rst year students attend small classes; (2) the test score advantage of students in small classes expands by about one percentile point per year in subsequent years; (3) teacher aides and measured teacher characteristics have little effect; (4) class size has a larger effect for minority students and those on free lunch; (5) Hawthorne effects were unlikely.

Gender, Agricultural Productivity and the Theory of the Household
 Timbergen Institute Discussion Paper

"... preliminary draft. I have benefitted from the comments of participants at a number of seminars. Financial support from the National Science Foundation is gratefully Virtually all models of the household have the minimal implication that the equilibrium allocation of resources is Pareto efficient.

is attributable to significantly higher labor and fertilizer inputs per acre on plots controlled by men. These results contradict the Pareto efficiency of resource allocation within the household. Production function estimates imply that about six percent of output is lost due to the misallocation of variable
Factor Graphs and the SumProduct Algorithm
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION THEORY
, 1998
"... A factor graph is a bipartite graph that expresses how a "global" function of many variables factors into a product of "local" functions. Factor graphs subsume many other graphical models including Bayesian networks, Markov random fields, and Tanner graphs. Following one simple c ..."

A model for technical inefficiency effects in a stochastic frontier production function for panel data
 Empirical Economics
, 1995
"... Abstract: A stochastic frontier production function is defined for panel data on firms, in which the nonnegative technical inetGciency effects are assumed to be a function of firmspecific variables and time. The inefficiency effects are assumed to be independently distributed as truncations of nor ..."

Training Products of Experts by Minimizing Contrastive Divergence
, 2002
"... It is possible to combine multiple latentvariable models of the same data by multiplying their probability distributions together and then renormalizing. This way of combining individual “expert ” models makes it hard to generate samples from the combined model but easy to infer the values of the l ..."

A product of experts (PoE) is therefore an interesting candidate for a perceptual system in which rapid inference is vital and generation
Trade Liberalization, Exit, and Productivity Improvements: Evidence from Chilean Plants
 Review of Economic Studies
, 2002
"... This paper empirically investigates the effects of liberalized trade on plant productivity in the case of Chile. Chile presents an interesting setting to study this relationship since it underwent a massive trade liberalization that significantly exposed its plants to competition from abroad during ..."

the late 1970s and early 1980s. Methodologically, I approach this question in two steps. In the first step, I estimate a production function to obtain a measure of plant productivity. I estimate the production function semiparametrically to correct for the presence of selection and simultaneity biases
