Introduction to the Theory of Economic Growth by Prof. Ramu Ramanathan (auth.)

By Prof. Ramu Ramanathan (auth.)

This e-book is an outgrowth of years of educating and doing re­ seek on the collage of California, San Diego (UCSD), within the sector of financial development. even supposing there were numerous books in this subject released within the final 8 years, i've been dis­ happy with them for a number of purposes. First, books akin to these by means of Wan, Burmeister and Dobell are asymmetric of their technical hassle and, whereas they're first-class, are it sounds as if tough for first yr graduate scholars and complex undergraduates. Solow's expository publication, however, is on the different ex­ treme. additionally, a number of the books appear to be geared toward the authors' friends instead of the scholars. My basic aim in penning this publication is to bridge this hole and to pitch, very appro­ priately i'm hoping, on the point of a customary scholar enrolled in a starting direction in progress concept. Secondly, just about all the expansion types within the literature could be recast in one analyti­ cal framework. even though a few of the authors haven't written with the intention to agree to any specific trend, it -is the functionality of a textbook author to spot this sort of trend, if it exists, and pre­ despatched the speculation in that framework. Many authors make implicit as­ sumptions approximately their types that are both by no means targeted or occasionally laid out in footnotes.

Since aggregate output is LIS or Lo ent/S, it will grow at the same rate as the labor force. 27 Per capita output will be constant at l/a. Case 3: n3 = s/a: the right of ala, w(k) If the initial capital intensity were to = sla = n3a/a which means k will decline. < n3k and therefore k< 0 This will continue until k reaches a/a, which corresponds to the full employment of both inputs. the left of ala, W(k) = n3k and k=0 To implying that the capital- labor ratio will be unchanged from its initial value.

There- Thus output and the stock of capi- tal will grow at the rate s/a. Let y be the per capita output Since Y grows at the rate sla and L grows at the rate n 1 , y will grow at the rate sla - n 1 which is negative. Thus in the Y/L. long run, per capita output would decline even though actual output is growing. 1. In this case, there will be ever rising excess capacity, aggregate output will grow at the rate n, in the long run, and per capita output will be constant. This is seen as follows. For all capital intensities below s/n 2S, means k is ~(k) > n2k which positive and capital intensity will increase until it reaches s/n 2S.
