    The Conflation of Productivity and Efficiency in Economics and Economic History.Edward Saraydar - 1989 - Economics and Philosophy 5 (1):55.
    The literature of comparative economics as well as economic history is replete with references to productivity differences as reflecting relative efficiency in production. In socialist economics, for example, the longevity of the relative-productivity/relative-efficiency theme is apparent from Abram Bergson's early survey where, commenting on a productivity debate that had already been going on for over twenty years, he identified “the only issue outstanding” as the question “which is more efficient, socialism or capitalism?” The issue has continued to be addressed vigorously (...)

In other words, in the relevant environment, they claim that individuals will systematically express (...)

    The Inefficiency of Some Efficiency Comparisons: A Reply to Nye: Edward Saraydar.Edward Saraydar - 1990 - Economics and Philosophy 6 (1):153-155.
