Impact of Cellular Phones on Technical and Allocative Efficiencies of Commercial Taxi and Fishing Boat Firms in Ghana

"It is important for the policy makers to know the productivity of a factor of production, know the levels of technical and allocative efficiencies, and their significant determinants so that the policy makers can know on which factor or determinant to concentrate. The policy makers may also be interested in knowing the various transmission channels through which the productivity of the firms can be improved or the transaction costs can be reduced by the use of cellular phones. The problems faced by different firms depend on the type of firm as well as the location of the firm. Sometime, the stability of the government in power depends on the identification and solution of these problems. The policy makers should also know the views of the key players in some of these firms so as to implement their suggestions."
