On the pricing of undesirable state-contingent outputs

Robert G. Chambers, Teresa Serra, Alfons Oude Lansink

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper adapts the models of Frisch (1965) and Murty and Russell (2006) on the modelling of undesirable outputs to a state-contingent setting with a specific emphasis on agricultural production technologies. The Chambers and Färe (2008) approach to calculating shadow prices for DEA technologies is extended to encompass state-contingent production problems. These contributions are implemented empirically using a dataset obtained from a survey of Catalan farmers.
