Further Details
Abstract Most of the literature on the efficiency effects of regulatory reforms ignores the gradual nature of the implementation of these reforms. This paper describes a new simple data manipulation which minimizes data requirements to measure econometrically the impact on efficiency of each stage of multi-stages regulatory reforms. The approach can easily be implemented using standard stochastic frontier software programs. It is illustrated with data on the Spanish port system which went through a two-stage reform during the 1990s.
