As the technology spreads, more and more firms in the same industry will use it (or something like it), and the price of the product will tend to fall. Eventually, almost all firms in the industry may improve their technology in similar ways, and the consumer will receive the full benefit of a lower price of the product.
They are index-numbers, that is values at constant prices, and there is no theoretical justification for assuming that the 'laws of production' apply to them. Since labour qualities also differ, the same objection can, in principle, be made to using aggregate labour as a variable in a production function. A pragmatic defence of this practice, at least over short or medium periods, is that over such periods the skill composition of the labour force does not vary greatly. A similar defence, although on weaker grounds, can be made for aggregating output.
Neoclassical Theory 23 The second alternative is the assumption of a stationary state. Here time is allowed to exist, but is subject to the condition that nothing ever changes. In a stationary world people would come to expect that the future would be exactly like the past, and consequently like the present. If p is the current market price, and JI is the price expected to exist in the future as of today, the assumption is that JI = p for all goods and services. Then it is safe to assume that, when decision-makers respond to expected future prices, they are behaving as if they were responding to present prices.
