Abstract

This paper discusses the aggregation of economic productivity indices, in particular Caves, Christensen and Diewert and Moorsteen–Bjurek indices. As part of the theory, some proposals developed in a number of recent papers (co‐) authored by Valentin Zelenyuk are put into context. Alternatives are offered which at the same time show that meaningful aggregation is not so simple.
