Abstract

In this paper, the productivity of Baltic banks over 2000-2006 is analysed with a Malmquist index and the input technological bias is investigated. Baltic banks on average became more efficient and experienced technological improvment. Our results indicate that the traditional growth accounting method, which assumes Hicks neutral technological change, is not appropriate for analyzing changes in productivity for Baltic banks.
