Ownership and Production Costs Choosing Between Public Production and Contracting Out
Henry Ohlsson ()
Working Papers from Uppsala - Working Paper Series

This is appropriate if the producer choice is random. The dummy variable model is, however, logically inconsistent if the producer choice depends on cost differences.
