Bowie changesIt just has been made official: my PhD focus has changed, and it will now be about the Two-tier Stochastic Frontier model, on which I have already published a paper.  The thesis will contain new distributional specifications for the model, among them one that allows for statistical dependence, and two applications where I apply the model to new situations that the existing literature has not touched upon. The projection is that the whole thing will be finished in the next 6 months, since most of the work has been done in the past years, as a … recreational break.
