Defined by economist Harvey Leibenstein, the theory relates to the efficiency of a business. For example, if you have a prime buy to let property that is well maintained, permanently let over the long term, and the mortgage is paid on time incurring the minimum costs possible, it could be said to be x-efficient. Conversly if the property is not making the returns it should, it could be deemed x-inefficient.
