Consumption time in household production: Implications for the goods-time elasticity of substitution

Economics Letters, 2011, vol. 112, issue 2, 138-140

Abstract: Under some reasonable assumptions, we show analytically that the goods-time elasticity of substitution will be greater if consumption time is not included as an input. An empirical example with food production is consistent with this result.
