Rigby Labor productivity can then be defined as (KJ� ( J� a _ LP = Ar VA a L � Lpw fJ+a+a-1 Lpw1-a (7) ' where A = A ll(I-a) and r = r1 1<1-a). Equation (7) can be used to solve for the values of a, fJ and O'. Hence, despite the fact that we do not examine the effect of the capital-to-labor ratio on productivity directly, we are able to recover an estimate. Tn order to estimate (7) we include a multiplicative error tenn F. and use its logarithmic transformation: 1n LP;Jk = ln A + ln r- + s; u1 - -- ln K; VA; + s; u2 ln Lnpw,i Lpw,i + s; u3 ln Lpw,; + ln c;, (8) -l indexes .
