KMF2014

Scaling the Efficiency Frontier: Institutions, Innovation, Inclusion

29 & 30 September 2014

Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre

Concept Paper

At a basic level, the productive capacity of an economy is capped by the amount of inputs available for utilisation, in terms of capital and labour, as well as the technological capability of society at a given point in time. Coordinating and efficiently applying inputs and technology leads to an economy achieving its maximum potential level of production. This is represented by the Production Possibility Frontier (PPF), which in essence depicts the productive efficiency frontier of an economy. However, this is a static point-in time observation. In the real world, economies are dynamic; entrepreneurs create new products and better coordinate inputs, leading to a continuum of technological and process innovation which pushes out the boundaries of an economy’s efficiency frontier.
