Let us adopt the standard assumption of the neoclassical growth model, namely that labor and technology growth with a constant rate, that is L(t) = L0 e’nt and A(t) = A0 e’at (n and a are assumed to be exogenous positive parameters). V) Here (note that # denotes the steady state) we can see that the savings rate s – the crucial variable in the SOLOW model – and both Z’ and NJ will affect the level of the growth path of k’. The long run growth rate of k=:K/L and per capita income y will be given, of course, by the progress rate a.

1 True Long Run Equilibrium in the Money Market Let us consider the long run money market equilibrium, namely, real money balances M/P equals the real demand for money md (Y,i) where M is the nominal money stock, Y aggregate output and i the nominal interest rate. As we will assume an expected inflation of zero, we will set i=r (real interest rate). 10b) Here ß is the output elasticity of capital and YK the marginal product of K. In this approach the marginal product of capital determines the real interest rate.

As an alternative to the specification presented we could introduce an additional term a2n2 (with a2<0) so that there is a critical rate n beyond which n will negatively affect the progress rate - say, because having very many children will undermine the ability of the family to ensure a decent education for all kids. For the sake of simplicity we focus on the simple equation above. X) The semi-elasticity of per capita income with respect to n (for the level of the growth rate) thus is given by –h’/n2 – [ß/(1-ß)](1+a1) which is negative; it would be ambiguous if we had considered a function a= a0 + a1n +a2n2; remember that a2<0).
