Large expenses associated with rice production and dependence on energy related inputs like fuel and fertilizer in particular compel rice producers to use management practices that are input efficient and result in least cost. This study uses data envelopment analysis (DEA) to calculate technical efficiency (TE), allocative efficiency (AE), and economic efficiency (EE) for rice production in Arkansas at the field level using data from 137 fields enrolled in the University of Arkansas, Rice Research Verification Program (RRVP) from 2005 to 2011.
Research objectives: The general objective of this dissertation is to propose solutions to enhance the economic efficiency in rice production for farming households in Can Tho city using estimates on economic efficiency and its determinants; estimating the economic efficiency in rice production by farming households in Can Tho city.
Chapter 9 - Pure competition. After completing this unit, you should be able to: The four basic market models, conditions for pure competition, profit maximization for competitive firms, the competitive firm supply curve, industry entry and exit, industry cost structure, economic efficiency.
In this chapter we showed you why economists and policymakers believe well-functioning competitive markets can lead to economically efficient levels of production and consumption in equilibrium. This chapter examined six important reasons for market failure and suggested some ways that government policymakers may remedy these failures.
The purpose of the thesis rearch is to propose a number of measures to advise the government and farmers to behave properly to improve the efficiency of tea production in Thai Nguyen, after analyzing the influence of price fluctuations of inputs on efficiency of tea production of households in the province.
Part II of this book focuses on financial markets, markets in which funds are trans-
ferred from people who have an excess of available funds to people who have a short-
age. Financial markets such as bond and stock markets are crucial to promoting
greater economic efficiency by channeling funds from people who do not have a pro-
ductive use for them to those who do. Indeed, well-functioning financial markets are
a key factor in producing high economic growth, and poorly performing financial
markets are one reason that many countries in the world remain desperately poor.
Chapter 8 - Production and cost in the short run. When you finish this chapter, you should: Understand the information given by a production function; explain two efficiency concepts: technical efficiency and economic efficiency; define and give examples of three types of inputs used in production: variable inputs, fixed inputs, and quasi-fixed inputs;...
In this chapter you will learn: The foundation of economics, the nature of economic efficiency, how to achieve economic growth, the two general types of economic systems society can choose to co-ordinate production & consumption decisions, what the circular flow model is.
When you finish this chapter, you should: Understand the information given by a production function; explain two efficiency concepts: technical efficiency and economic efficiency; define and give examples of three types of inputs used in production: variable inputs, fixed inputs, and quasi-fixed inputs;...
Chapter 12 - Production and cost analysis I. After reading this chapter, you should be able to: Distinguish technical efficiency from economic efficiency, explain how economies and diseconomies of scale influence the shape of long-run cost curves, explain the role of the entrepreneur in translating cost of production to supply, discuss some of the problems of using cost analysis in the real world.
Chapter 21 - Profit maximization. This chapter presents the following content: Marginal Revenue, profit maximization and loss minimization, the short-run supply curve, the long-run supply curve, the shut-down and break-even points, economic efficiency.

initial distribution of resources.“
What can’t be measured can’t be improved. Even though Supply Chain Management is the most talked about topic today, currently no tool is available to measure any manufacturing organizations’ supply chain efficiency. Unlike productivity and or quality measurement, where the parameter can be measured objectively and expressed in unit or ratio, supply chain measurement is currently more of a qualitative statement.
If better management (BMP) was adopted in Vietnam there is evidence that the current trends and past environmental degradation can be stopped and even reversed, and shrimp production efficiency can be increased.
The members of America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) are committed to working with policymakers, health
care providers, and consumers to contribute to our common fundamental interests in promoting a vibrant health
care system and a vital economy.
For the nation, and in the states, lack of health insurance is a major economic drain, one that costs $50 billion
annually. We believe that access to health insurance coverage should be our number one domestic priority. In late
2006, we released a blueprint for achieving that goal.
Three essays consider implications of the strong association between student
background characteristics and academic performance.
Chapter One considers the incentives that school choice policies might create for the
efficient management of schools. These incentives would be diluted if parents prefer
schools with desirable peer groups to those with inferior peers but better policies and
instruction. I model a Tiebout choice housing market in which schools differ in both peer
group and effectiveness.

Disability is an important issue for the transition countries of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Not only is a significant portion of their population either in poor health or disabled-with implications for labor force participation and productivity-but their aging demographics project an increase in the share of disabled people, raising concerns about the sustainability of social protection programs.
AN INQUIRY ll’TO THE EFFECTS OF PERSONALITY VARIABLES ON THE ECONOMIC RETURN TO EDUCATION The potential efficiency-enhancing effects of increased Tiebout choice operate
through the assumption that parents prefer schools with j
μ -promoting policies. To the
extent that this is true, Tiebout choice induces a positive correlation between j μ and j x ,
since high- i x families will outbid lower- i x families for homes near the most preferred
