A neoclassical growth model is given by the follow-ing economic environment: Yt = F(Kt;Lt;t); (1) K_ t = Yt Ct Kt; K0 >0; 0; (2) and Lt = L0e nt; L 0 >0; n 0: (3) The Solow model gave us some basic intuition about what factors are important for growth, but the Solow model lacks micro-foundations, in that consumers are assumed to use a rule of thumb for dividing income into consumption and saving, and everybody works full time. Prof. Solow has summed up the discussion thus: “whatever the initial value of the capital-labour ratio, the system will develop towards a state of balanced growth at the natural rate. The stochastic growth model 3. The steady-state growth theorem applies to the one-sector neoclassical growth model. The neoclassical growth model developed in the 1950s by Solow (1956) and Swan is the ... balanced growth path. Section 4 presents the shortcomings of Uzawa theorem and its Impulse response functions 7. Second, the steady-state growth rates of capital depend on. Essentially, in the long-run equilibrium, per capita output grows at the exogenous rate of technical progress. One side of the cone is a ray from the origin; the other K K r*L FIGURE III is a line parallel to the equilibrium ray. So "balanced growth path" = "steady state of magnitudes per efficiency unit of labor", and I guess you can figure out the rest for your phase diagram. The Stochastic Growth Model 2 Contents 1. The maximization problem of the representative household Appendix B Appendix C C1. In the long-run equilibrium of this model, alternatively referred to as the steady state or the balanced growth path, economic growth is exogenous and equal to the rate of population growth plus the rate of technical progress. As Uzawa (1961) pointed out, and Schlicht (2006) and Jones and Scrimgeour (2008) later clari–ed, a balanced growth path in the two-factor neoclassical growth model with a constant and exogenous rate of population growth and … But we continue to call it "balanced growth path", because per capita magnitudes, which is what we are interested in, in our individualistic approach), continue to grow). Linearization around the balanced growth path 5. Thus, the Solow model does not have a role for consumers™choices. The steady state 4. Although Solow had reservations about whether balanced growth is “the normal state of aﬀairs,” the neoclassical growth model is well told Conclusions Appendix A A1. Eco 466: Economics of Growth The Engine of Growth Mustafa Tu§an November 20, However, balanced growth is possible if education is endogenous and capital is more complementary with schooling than with raw labor. Definition 2.1. Growth. construct of a balanced growth path: output, employment and capital grow at a constant rate while the capital/output ratio and factor shares are constant. The instability of the Harrod-Domar model is gone. We begin by de ning the model precisely and then de ning a balanced growth path. The maximization problem of the representative firm A2. THE SOLOW NEOCLASSICAL GROWTH MODEL 137 growth path must lie within such a shaded cone as is drawn in Figure III. We present a class of aggregate production functions for which a neoclassical growth model with capital-augmenting technological progress and endogenous schooling converges to a balanced growth path. Section 3 specifies the differences between steady-state growth and balanced growth based on existing literatures, and provides the conditions of their realization in the neoclassical growth model.
