Notes: Meredith Beechey Oral Exam

Things I need to read if I'm going to do a good job in thinking about Meredith Beechey's dissertation prospectus, "Technological Change and Quality Improvement":

Weitzman, M.: 1976, "On the welfare significance of national product in a dynamic economy," Quarterly Journal of Economics 90(1), 156?162.

Weitzman, M.: 1999, "A contribution to the theory of welfare comparisons." NBER Working Paper Series No. 6988.

Costa, D.: 2001, "Estimating real income in the us from 1888 to 1994: Correcting cpi bias using engel curves," Journal of Political Economy 109(6), 1288?1310.
