Abstract

In this paper we present estimates of Korean bank inefficiency and productivity change for the period 1992 to 2002 that are derived from the directional technology distance function. Our method controls for loan losses that are an undesirable by-product that arise from producing loans and allows the aggregation of individual bank inefficiency and productivity growth to the industry level. We find indicate that technical progress during the period was more than enough to offset efficiency declines so that the banking industry experienced productivity growth.
