''Anatomy of production functions: a technological menu and a choice of the best technology''
( 2010, Vol. 30 No.3 )
Jones (2005) proposed microfoundations for the Cobb-Douglas production function. We show that Jones' technological menu is a special case of a concept of support set discussed by Matveenko (1997) and Rubinov, Glover (1998) by use of a duality approach. We use this approach to clarify the relation between different production functions and technological menus. Also we construct an "ideas model" generating CES production function.
Keywords: Production function, technological menu, Leontief function, Cobb-Douglas function, CES function, duality, support set
