Of economics and statistics: the Gerschenkron effect

Stefano Fenoaltea ()

PSL Quarterly Review, 2019, vol. 72, issue 290, 195-205

Abstract: The 'Gerschenkron effect' refers to the purported biases of early-weighted and late-weighted indices of production. If production is properly measured in what economists mean by real terms, the Gerschenkron effect does not exist at all.
