Theodore Papageorgiou, Felter Family Associate Professor of Economics, Boston College

Using a detailed data set on port service and wait times, port infrastructure and labor, we estimate a port “production function”. This micro-model of port technology allows us to answer questions such as, why are ports prone to disruptions, what is the role of port inputs and port productivity and whether a reallocation of inputs and labor in particular can improve port performance.
