Sample text

Since the elasticity of output per worker with respect to capital per worker is αK , log capital per worker must differ by ( ln X )/αK . That is, capital per worker differs by a factor of e (ln X )/αK , or X 1/αK . Output per worker in the major industrialized countries today is on the order of 10 times larger than it was 100 years ago, and 10 times larger than it is in poor countries today. Thus we would like to account for values of 18 These results are derived from a Taylor-series approximation around the balanced growth path.

Define k = K /AL, y = Y/AL, and f (k) = F (k,1). 3) as y = f (k). 4) That is, we can write output per unit of effective labor as a function of capital per unit of effective labor. These new variables, k and y , are not of interest in their own right. Rather, they are tools for learning about the variables we are interested in. As we will see, the easiest way to analyze the model is to focus on the behavior of k rather than to directly consider the behavior of the two arguments of the production function, K and AL.

And in part, it was because the adoption of the new technologies involved substantial adjustment costs. 20 Convergence An issue that has attracted considerable attention in empirical work on growth is whether poor countries tend to grow faster than rich countries. There are at least three reasons that one might expect such convergence. First, the Solow model predicts that countries converge to their balanced growth paths. Thus to the extent that differences in output per worker arise from countries being at different points relative to their balanced growth paths, one would expect poor countries to catch up to rich ones.
