Energy-biased technical change in the Chinese industrial sector with CES production functions

Zha, Donglan; Kavuri, Anil Savio; Si, Songjian


We develop a theoretical framework to study energy-biased technical change considering capital, labor and energy as inputs. The framework involves a first order condition estimation of elasticity and technical change parameters for a three factor-nested Constant Elasticity of Substitution (CES) function. Technical change parameters, elasticities and time derivatives of marginal products are combined to compute technical change bias. Conceptually, we introduce total bias in order to estimate the...[Show more]
