dc.description.abstractThe elasticity of substitution between capital and labor features prominently in several areasof economic research. However, a consensus estimate remains elusive. We develop anestimation strategy that filters panel data in an original way and avoids several pitfalls -difficult-to-specify dynamics, transitory time-series variation, and positively sloped supplyschedules - inherent in investment equations that can bias the estimated elasticity. Results arebased on an extensive panel containing 1,860 manufacturing and non-manufacturing firms.Our model generates a precisely estimated elasticity of approximately 0.40. The methoddeveloped here may prove useful in estimating other structural parameters from paneldatasets.en_US
