Chapter IV.2 - Measurement of the Elasticity of Factor Substitution and Bias of Technical Change * PETER DIAMOND, DANIEL McFADDEN, MIGUEL RODRIGUEZ Pages Relative factor usage in canadian mining: Neoclassical substitution or biased technical change?Author: Charles W. Smithson. Downloadable! Author(s): Miguel A. León-Ledesma & Peter McAdam & Alpo Willman. Abstract: The capital-labor substitution elasticity and technical biases in production are critical parameters. The received wisdom claims their joint identification is infeasible. We challenge that interpretation. Putting the new approach of "normalized" production functions at the heart of a Monte Carlo.

Global mining operates across a plethora of national, regional and local jurisdictions, most of which engage the mining industry with their own policies, regulations and taxes. When mining is in a rising commodity price cycle, as it was in the first decade of this century, governments tend to. raise mining taxes to capture a higher share of profits. The Mining Association of Canada (MAC) is the national organization of the Canadian mining industry. We represent companies involved in mineral exploration, mining, smelting, refining and semi-fabrication. Our member companies account for most of Canada’s output of metals and minerals.
