Technology Adoption and Labor Training under Uncertainty.
Gander, James P.
Economics of Education Review, v22 n3 p285-89 Jun 2003
Employee training must accompany technology adoption. Develops a model of the firm incorporating employee training and the uncertain reliability of the effect on labor productivity. An augmenter captures training effect; a two-state probability function captures uncertainty. Estimates for training cost ratio range from 4-10 percent, so elasticities are relatively small, yet significant. (Contains 27 references.) (Author/PKP)
