A remarkable work, the Domesday Book contains detailed and comprehensive information on ownership, income, resources, and fiscal responsibilities for almost evey manor of Norman England in 1086. The bewildering and voluminous data of the Domesday Book has baffled economists in the past, but Snooks and McDonald have compiled an unequaled new interpretation of this ancient work now in its 900th anniversary. Using modern economic theory and statistical techniques, the authors reappraise the relationship between manorial revenue and resources to attain a new perspective on the English economy between 1066 and 1086.See also production functions for a more technical discussion productivity, 38, 83 profit-maximization, 95, 98, 100, 1 14, 1 19 property rights, 14-15, ... effects, firm and non-systematic, 215-16 random experiment, 137-8 random variable: 137-44; continuous, 140; discrete, 140; independent, 140 reddit, see rents ...
